Printer sharing setup problem / bypassing password on "server" in P2P network
Posted on 2006-06-26
Trying to share an HP LaserJet printer. Peer-to-peer network. It appears that everything is set up/connected properly. However for the client to connect to the the "server" connected printer, they would need to find the network "server" in network places, and then type in the password for the "server". One this connection is established the client can then print.
Is there a way to automatically connect the client to the server printer without having the password prompt? I would prefer not giving clients the password to the "server". The "server" is running Windows 2000 Pro, while the client is running Windows XP Home. Thank you!
