I ran into the following problem a few times: When I tried to connect a network printer from one of the print servers, the error 0x00000057 Windows cannot connect to the printer was displayed on the client computer. The error occurred during the installation of the printer driver from the print server and, I later discovered, is fixed on the client-side. The steps to resolve this problem are described below.
Connecting to a printer
Windows fails to connect to a printer.
The operation ended with error 0x00000057.
