Did this solve your problem? Sorry this didn't help. I now had the Lexmark driver - and quite a bundle of other drivers as well that I had not asked for. That error seems to have something to do with Windows co-operation with Samba-based printer servers. Actually I have a feeling that it has something to do with the digital signing of drivers. This is one thing that I as a parttime IT professional have started becoming more and more annoyed about.
There is definitely something wrong here!. This port is checked in 'ports'. Both queues seems to be empty when I try to do that.
Remember that the printer here is actually now connected locally. With both printers present in the printer list e. I now delete 1 Lexmark printer - and they both disappears. I now re-install the Network printer and Windows now tells me that there is an error on the printer each time I try to print. Why has Microsoft disabled this possibility quite some time ago?
