Win2000 SUS Server Will Not Allow Setup of Web Printing in IIS

I have a brand new Windows 2000 Server running the latest version of SUS(sp1).  Software Update Services (SUS) is working great and updating all machines on the network with necessary updates.  Next week this server will also become a print server with hopes of enabling web printing on it as well.

When I first installed SUS on another of our print servers running web printing it disabled web printing and I was no longer able to get out to the web printing site to install or browse printers.  On this new server, SUS was installed first and web printing was added afterwards and we are still not able to get out to the web printing site.  For those of you who don't know, web printing is very simple to setup and there is not a lot that can go wrong when setting it up.

Anyway, it seems that SUS is somehow disabling web printing or changing the permissions on the web printing virtual directory in IIS and disallowing the use of it.

Does anyone have any ideas?  Do I have to re-enable something that SUS has disabled in order for this to work?  Do I have to reset permissions on the web printing directory and if so, will this effect permissions on the SUS directory?  I was hoping to try a few things without messing up SUS.

Thanks,
D. J.

This is normal behavior, a "functions as designed" as it were.  When SUS is installed it locks down IIS for security purposes.  MS wants you to be able to trust that what you download from its update site is free and clear of any abuse.  One of the holes that they had to plug was IIS on the SUS server.

Look at this white paper.  It talks about the IIS Lockdown to keep the server secure.
