Shared printer prints in mirror image RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed printer sharing in my onecare circle and it worked exactly as advertised except the print image that came out was a mirror image of the actual print page.  The printer is on an XP and the shate is on a Vista machine.  I can share this printer through wiondows with no problem.  I only have the problem in the onecare circle.  Any thoughts out there?

  • It sounds to me like the OneCare printer sharing function is using an incorrect driver for your printer. Since you can share it normally through Windows, I'd not bother with the OneCare printer sharing functionality. However, you can contact support for help with getting it working correctly.
