Can I access a shared printer on Domain with XP home
Posted on 2004-08-28
I don't want to have the user type in a PW everytime
I dont want to have to hook up a router.
Right now i have 20+ workstations as members of a windows 2000 server domain.
most are 98 and XP pro . However there are a couple machines in the building that are Xp home and I would like to access a shared printer within the domain. The printer is shared by a XP pro workstation which logs on to the domain. The print server (Xp pro) is also used by the students as a workstation so i would like to leave it as part of the domain because they access network shares on the server.
Does anyone know of a way to have the XP home machines reconnect to the printer on bootup/logon. I have my suspicions that the only way to do this is to upgrade the home machines to Pro or use a router.
Thanx in advance for any suggestions
