Environment has IP printing throughout mostly HP laserjet business machines. 2003 domain. With any new 2003 32 or 64 bit server out of the box not a template or image, somehow a print device is installed automatically. When I stop the spooler service on the server it errors out but that is he only way to stop the automatic mapping of the print device. i am guessing there is  configuration  in the IP printer itself???

The server will not automatically mount HP IP priinter on LAN if it is not connected direcly (e.g. by USB). Could you tell me more detail about it ?

On the other hand, it may have some "printer mapping script" is running in the background when the users logged...?

There is no script on the server side...it was a fresh out of the box install, logging in as administrator.
