Can you make Windows 2000 not require any kind of authentication for a printer share?
Posted on 2004-09-23
I've got an XP and a 2000 machine networked. The printers on both are shared. The 2000 box can print to the XP printer no problem. If I attempt to print a test page from the XP box to the 2000 one after a reboot I get the error that I don't have access to the printer. If I browse through the network to the 2000 machine, and put in some login info (a user name, no password) then after that I can print from the 2000 printer just fine.
I need to know how to either make the XP system permanently save the login info so that it just works all the time, or I need to know how to make 2000 not want any authentication at all (preferable).
Thanks in advance. -Souter
