http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi Vitualbox 4.14 on laptop running Fed FC16, this one, with guest OS winxp 32 bit. Samba server on another machine also running FC16. Problem: No matter what I've tried I cant get a printer to function printing from windows. I always get the cant find printer message, check name etc. SElinux is permisive on both machines, and firewall ports are OK. When this machine was dual boot with win7, I could print from it, but not from the VM. Since win 7 played silly wotsits with the mbr, I gave it the boot, so fresh install of FC16. At the moment winthing on the VM cant see a printer, but c (HowTos)
