Sorry, don't like using you guys as tech support, but I didn't know where else to go. I can't seem to get printing between my vista machines (4 of them) and my XP desktop, which most of my printers are connected to. I tried finding a network printer - it'll see the name of the desktop, but upon connecting it will say that it is an invalid host name. I installed LLDP on the desktop, to no avail. I don't know where else to go with this. If you could direct me a little bit, or even to another trustworthy forum, I would be greatly appreciative.

I also uninstalled Norton Internet Security and disabled my firewall - no luck. My ipconfig /all looks conspicuously short, though...I have a feeling that there's something wrong with this machine that is beyond the ken of mere mortals. So, I turn to you...

Here's my ipconfig /all, by the way:

Code:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\Vital Points Therapy>ipconfig /all

PS, it's a small office; we're running some sort of D-Link router and we really need printing capabilities

The only thing that jumps out with regard to your ipconfig is that your print server is being assigned an address by DHCP.

Do you have an address reservation set for it in the DHCP server? If not, you either need to reserve the IP, or give it a static address.

Otherwise, you'll get everything set up and working, then it'll break for no apparent reason when the IP changes.
