In the SBS2003 domain, we have a Windows 2008 x64 Server ("Server1"). We have a "Kyocera KM-C3232 KX" network printer connected to the network directly. I would like to use "Server1" as the print server. So I installed the printer on "Server1" and shared it. The share name is "Kyocera C3232"
Now I need to install this printer on workstaions. On a XP workstation, I installed the printer successfully as below -
Start | Run | typed in "\\server1" in "Open" box | OK
This would show all the shares on "Server1", I then double-clicked on the share name "Kyocera C3232" to install. Now I see the printer "Kyocera KM-C3232 KX on Server1
" with a network wire
under the icon showed up on the workstation. Please see the attached screen shot.
Here are the questions
1. Is it possible to remove the network wire under the icon? I believe so, but do not know how.
2. On workstations, I would like the printer name to be "Kyocera C3232
" instead of the default name "Kyocera KM-C3232 KX on Server1". I understand that I can "Rename" the printer manually on each workstation, but this is too much work.
Please give solutions as detailed as possible if you can.
