Cannot print to remote lexmark z11 printer

I had Vista Home Premium on my laptop from which I could print on an old Lexmark Z11 attached to another laptop running XP. Recently I upgraded to Windows 7 and now I cannot print this way. Although the 7 machine can see the printer, it says it is 'Ready' and I see stuff in its print queue on my machine, after a while these items disappear without appearing on the XP machine's queue. The printer shows no activity whatsoever. I have removed the printer from my machine and reinstalled it... still no joy. The XP machine has extra drivers loaded for "2000 and XP".

First you must download Vista or Windows 7 drivers from the Lexmark website ( and install them.

Then Add a Printer, Add a Network printer, point it to the Z11 and it should install.
