Hi all.

I am having an issue. I get the following message when trying to print to a shared printer on my network:

Access denied, unable to connect

This happened all of sudden. Any ideas?

Is this printer shared on a domain workstation or server?

Can you ping the IP address of the printer?  Have you restarted the Print Spooler service on the server/workstation that is sharing the printer?  To restart the spooler, open command line:
1. type 'net stop spooler'
2. then, 'net start spooler'

Hope this helps.
