"windows cannot connect to the printer

Recently we wanted to lớn print something from an old computer running Windows 2000 (yes, we have sầu all kinds of dinosaurs in our office zoo) to lớn a printer connected to lớn a máy vi tính that was recently upgraded lớn Windows 10. In the past, all we needed to lớn bởi was to lớn giới thiệu the printer on the máy vi tính, và then add it as a network printer on the Windows 2000 computer, & it would work beautifully.

This time, however, when attempting to add the network printer khổng lồ the Windows 2000 computer, we received the following message: "Windows cannot connect khổng lồ the printer. Access is denied." We tried khổng lồ bởi the usual troubleshooting: checked the security settings of the shared printer, checked the sharing settings, made sure that the tệp tin và printer sharing was enabled on the Windows 10 máy tính, all was in order, yet the Windows 2000 computer was still denied access lớn the shared printer.

After restarting both computers a few times & repeating the sharing/connecting steps, but the same error message appeared every time. So we tried something different, and it worked. We decided to giới thiệu our solution here, hoping it could be of help khổng lồ someone else:

1. On the computer to which the printer is connected (in our case it was the Windows 10 laptop), tóm tắt the printer as usual, and when sharing it, set up the tóm tắt name that is easy lớn type in. For example, in our case the long name of the printer was "Epson Stylus Pholớn R200", but we shared it with the name EpsonR200: (using a simple name lượt thích that should make it easier to enter it later on)


2. On the computer from which you want to lớn connect to this printer (in our case it was the Windows 2000 computer) use the built-in Add Printer wizard và choose the "Add Local Printer" option. (If your computer runs Windows 10, you can find this wizard on the Devices - Printers và Scanners page of the Windows Settings window)


3. Press Next, & on the next page choose the "Create a new port" option & make sure the "Local port" option is selected:


4. When you press Next, Windows will prompt you to lớn enter the port name. Enter the UNC name of the shared printer, in the format: //computername/sharedname . In our case, the computer name of the Windows 10 máy vi tính was laptop, và we had previously mix up the shared name of the printer as EpsonR200 (see Step 1 above), so we entered the port name as:


If you don"t know the network name of your computer, you can find it out as follows: right-cliông xã on the This PC thư mục (or Computer) in Explorer or some other tệp tin manager, & choose Properties from the shortcut menu. On that page, look for the "computer name" text. That"s the name you need lớn enter instead of "laptop" in our example. Be sure khổng lồ use the name of the computer that has the printer attached to it, not the one from which you are trying to connect to lớn the printer through the network!

Next, Windows will probably ask you lớn select the printer make & mã sản phẩm, install its drivers, etc. Keep providing the information that the wizard requires, according to your specific printer. When done, Windows should add the new printer to the computer, & you should be able lớn use it lớn print files. The procedure described above worked for us, hopefully it will work for you, too.

Happy printing!
