Networking Printers with Win2000 Pro & Win2000 Server
Posted on 2003-10-28
Hope someone can help, I'll put this in point form.
*I have installed a printer on a desktop running Win2000 Pro. *I have shared the printer. *The desktop has a static IP address. (not that this is overly important I know)
*I then go to the Win2000 Server to install a network printer. *Map to \\IP Address\printer share name.
Message displayed tells me that I cannot access the printer. I have tried allocating permissions on the desktop i.e. Everyone, Annon Login, Terminal Server Users, etc and I just can't get it to work.
The objective is to install the printer on the Server, so that the printer is then accessible by users running a Terminal Server Section. I can easily achieve this IF the desktop was Win98 but I have no luck with Win2000.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated, Thanks.
