Printer sharing on Win 7 networks

After I upgraded my XP machines to Win 7, I could not print from networked computers. The server computer saw the printer (HP-1022) without problems and printed documents. The client computers saw the printer, installed the driver and attempted to send a test page to the printer but nothing got there. The document showed up on both the server and the client, but was not sent to the printer. Help from T-VOG pointed out that the default value for the port on the server's printer installation was bi-directional. Once this was turned off, the client computers could print normally.
