Hi,
  I am using WinNT as server and have win98 as clients. One system uses Windows 2000 Professional. In that printer I have installed a printer. If other win98 users connected to WinNT needs to use this printer in network. If I install the printer in Win98 It ask for password and it doesn't accept the administrator password and other password.  Can any one help me to solve this problem. Advance thanks to them.

Are you working on a Windows NT 4.0 Domain environment?

When you enter the authentication information are you entering the user name in "DomainName\Administrator" or "LocalWorkstationName\Administrator" format? Make sure whatever user account your connecting with has permissions to that object and that it's been enabled for sharing.

Windows 98 cannot authenticate under 2 login names. whatever name was logged on at first, will be used for all subsequent authentications. so the administrator password will not work if you have not originally logged on as "administrator" in Windows 98. (not likely)

there are 2 solutions:

1. The W2K system must join the domain. the user that the win98 system is logged into must then have permissions to use the printer. (this should be by default if the user is a ember of "domain users" on the NT4 server)

2. if the W2K system is not part of a domain, then a user needs to be defined on the local system. the username and password must match the username that the win98 system is using.

are the users on the w98 boxes loging on with a username and password? They need to, this creates tha access token that NT needs to allow access to it's resources. Or you can give guest access to the printer

I suggest that in your low security model, you should use the guest account as stated by stevenlewis...

all of the windows 98 pc that you intend to install the printer installed in the windows 2000 should be in the same domain. aside from that, they should logon to the domain first in order to access service such as printer sharing.
