Printer Sharing Problem
Posted on 2004-08-18
I've recently changed the way our printers are managed, so that now all print jobs go through a server using a standard tcp/ip port, rather than a tcp/ip port on each computer.
The problem now is that in order to make use of the shared printer, the printer must be installed, as a shared resource throught active directory, through every user's account on every computer. I mean, if I set the printers up myself, it seems that I have to log on to every account, on every computer. For 20 accounts and 10 machines, for example, this means 12 x 20 = 200 jobs to do. There must be an easier way?
