Hello,

What is the best way to share a printer so that non-domain members can use it? What are the settings? Periodically, I have outside people coming in and they need to use a printer which is shared on a domain computer. Some people have laptops with XP home and some with XP pro.

Thanks,
John

If the printers are on the network you can have those people print directly to the IP of the printer avoiding the print server all together.

Or you may be able to allow "Everyone" to print to that printer.
