Remote printing

Created: 17 Mar 2014 | 3 comments

I have windows 7 32 bit encryption on both host and remote computers.  Everything is set up as per instructions.  It sends the item to be printed to the remote and it shows receiving something but does not print it!  I'm using HP Officejet 4630 and I did unenable the bidirectional on both the host and remote.  Why am I have so much trouble?

Hi thegicks,

When you follow the steps which they have mentioned in the article TECH110554 , it should work.

I can suggest you to create a new host file give a try - if its not working.

Then try to decrypt the files and try.

1. Create the host file, it will located in "C:\ProgramData\Symantec\pcAnywhere\Hosts"

2. We have to decrypt the file using the tool - www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO75111

3. Then in the machine where the host file is presented, replace with the decrypted host file.

4. Make sure that you do the same to the remote file.

let me know how this goes...

Thanks,
Siva
