More default printer problems..
Posted on 2001-08-21
Upon the advice of people here, I am setting printers up using con2prt. This works okay, under a Group Policy at user level. However, if I move this to computer level it runs the script, but fails - this seems to be because it can't reach the printers on the server? Has anyone successfully configured remote printers on a per-computer basis?? The reason I want to do this is because we have students and the printers they use depends on which lab they are in - so I can't set things up on a per-user basis.
Additionally sometimes when a user logs in they can see the printers, but they can't be contacted. However when we login as administrator on the computer the queues can be opened okay. Then after a reboot and login as a user again everything is fine - why is this?
