Wrong username on separator page

Posted on 2009-05-01

I'm printing from a WinXP pro sp2 machine to a Windows 2003 print server. When I installed the printer on the XP pro system it prompted me for username/pwd to connect to the server. I put in my username/pwd (I'm a domain admin) but now whenever the user prints a job, it prints MY username on the separator page instead of hers. I've deleted the printer & recreated, and I've deleted my profile from the machine, but the sep. page still prints out wrong. Not sure what's going on here. It does the same thing (wrong name) no matter which network printer she prints to.

    You need to connect using her username.
    Which means she needs access rights to the printer share on the server.
    At the moment she is authenticating as you when accessing the printer share, hence the wrong username.
