Offline printing problem

When a user fails to logon to the network and tries to print to a network printer it sets the offline status bit to 1. This causes the printer to be hung for all following loggins. Setting the printer to not spool solves the problem when the user logs back in by taking the re-start option. But if the user logs back in by taking the option "Close all programs and login as a different user" it still hangs.
Is there a bit setting that will correct this?

Hi Donsmith48,

I am not sure which network o/s you are using but I will try to answer as well as possible. I believe it is a network client software issue.

If Netware:
Uninstall current client and install the latest netware client.

If WinNT:
Start,settings,controlpanel,network,Client for MSNetworks,Properties,choose "logon to restore network connections".

You could also unstall the printer driver and get the latest driver from the internet and install it.

Hope this helps.
