The outstanding problem is that I cannot yet print from my Windows XP laptop, as client,(connected via the modem/router) while running Ubuntu on this PC as host. I'm not even sure how to check that the network connection with the laptop is properly and completely set up.

Is this the place to sort this out or should I start a new thread?
Glad to be of help.

I would start a new thread, maybe posting a link back to this one?
