monitoring of shared printers" is selected in the Monitoring
Preferences dialog box.

Control Panel and make sure that the "File and printer sharing for
Microsoft Networks" component is installed. Then, on the server AND
clients, make sure that the "IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol" or the
"TCP/IP Protocol" is installed.
