Phantom Printers on Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2006-11-28
I am having an issue with numerous Phantom Printers on a Windows 2000 Server.
I have set-up several printers on a Printer server and shared the printers and they all seem to work fine (All HP apart from 3 Ricoh Photocopiers).
I have turned off ipx, and apple on all printers, we are running an IP network.
But when I remote onto the server (from a Windows XP Pro SP2 computer, logged in as my username) and go into Printers, I see several phantom printers with the name of my workstation, and seession1 at the end of each?
Can anyone please explain why?
Is the server network crawling for printers when I connect?
I did set-up the printers as Administrator on the server.
