Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user using more than one user name are not allowed.

I am currently using WIN2k advance server.
It is now currently a "printserver"
There are 2 users: user1 and user2
everyone is mapped to the printer using user1

I have a folder that needs to be shared out.
BUT only user2 can view the contents of the folder but not user1.
I treid to map it using my computer...
But i get an error saying:
the network folder specified is currently mapped using a different username and password
To connect using a different name, please disconnect any existing mapping.
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user using more than one user name are not allowed.

Any advice on how i can overcome this problem?
Can i change those that requires user2 to login as user2? How? Cause i think i checked the "save password" when i map to the printserver itself.

Please advice.

Well, this will work.
However, you shouldn't assign access to shares directly by users for this reason.
You should
1. Create the share(s).
2. Create a group.
3. Add users to the group.
4. Give the Group access to the share(s).
So, share the printer. Create a group called (for instance) "Printer users". Give the group access to the printer. Put all of your users (user1 and user 2) into that group. .
Then, create the folder you want to share. (folder1) Then create a group for that share (folder1users).
Give the group (folder1users) permission to the share. Add the users you want to access that share (user2) to the group (folder1users).
