I have a printer that is connected via a parallel port to a PC (Win 2K) on our Windows 2000 network.
I want everyone on the network to be able to use this printer, so I have shared it and given 'Everyone' all permissions for this printer in the security tab.
I have some PCs on the network that are used by more than one person, so they have many profiles on them.
What do I have to do so that whenever ANYONE logs in to ANY PC on the network, they should get connected to this printer and be able to use it?
I have tried using 'Add Printer' on each PC, but if I install the printer using 'Add Printer' it only installs for the profile I am logged in as, not for everyone on that PC. I have tried this as Administrator too, but still everyone on that PC does not get the printer.
I have been told to use the 'net use' command, but don't know how to use it or whether it is the right solution.
Can you help? Thanks.
