When you use the point and click printing functionality with the following Lexmark printers, you may not be able to print to a network printer:
  • 1000 Series
  • 5000, 5700, 7000, and 7200 Series
  • Z11, Z12, Z22, Z31, Z32, Z42, Z51, Z52 and 3200 Color Jetprinters
This issue can occur because the Lexmark software is designed to be installed locally so that it can communicate with the printer directly and provide printer-specific information such as ink levels to the customer.
To resolve this issue, refer to the "How to Share Lexmark Printers over a Windows 95/98 Peer to Peer Network" document that is located at the following Lexmark Web site: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support.
