Server 2003 Domain.

Win XP SP3 workstation.

On this workstation 'only' anyone logging in 'besides' the administrator cannot print to shared printers on the server.

I have disjoined/rejoind TWICE. Changed computer name, Changed IP address, granted the user admin rights. flushed the DNS - still not working.

Please advise.

Thanks for the response.

That did not fix my issue. I resolved my issue by doing a 'workaround' - installing it as a local printer and naming the port \\share\printer.

Works for me but original problem was never solved.

Reason that its not an 'A' is because the solution does not 'solve' the problem. Rather, it works 'around' it.
