HP 4350 Access Denied?

I have an HP 4350 Laserjet being shared via Parallel on my domain. It works most of the time but sometimes for no reason a user won't be able to print and I'll look at the printers and it's not connected. It says access denied.

I delete the printer and it lets me do that but when I try to readd the printer it has a popup that says

connecting to computer.domain.local

sub the computer for the name of the compter hosting my printer and the domain for my domain.

The popup is asking for a user/password. I've tried entering my network user and passwords and it doesn't work.

The printer share has auth users with the print access? It's only this one printer that has the problem. I have many printers shared and they all work fine.

Any ideas?

Try prefacing your username with your domain such as

domain\username

Post back with the outcome.

Ok then I would delete and re-add the printer on the server. Sounds like permissions may have burped. It's faster and easier than troubleshooting permissions and if all other work fine you shouold  re-create it anyway as there may be another issue that is hiding that should be resolved after the re-creation.

I've now deleted and readded the printer. Everything worked ok for a few doc and then all of the sudden we're back to where we were.

It also happened to me as well saying access denied. I have Domain Admin rights.

On the PC hosting the printer is there anything that would cause this.?

What kind of OS....... XP? Do you have Windows Firewall enabled? If so turn off Windows Firwall and see if you can connect.

I moved it to another system and so far so good. Some must be really jacked up with permissions on that machine.

If you use group policies  through AD on the workstation that is having the problems try runnng gpupdate /F from a cmd prompt or the run command and refresh group policies and see if that does any good.
