Misdirected print server messages

By kkishi ·
Our network consists of an NT 4 Server and NT 4 Workstations communicating via TCP/IP. When printing to a network printer, the screen message that acknowledges a successful print job gets displayed on another workstation on the network rather than the workstation from which the job was sent. At my workstation, I was logged on as Administrator. The print job that I originated was acknowledged on the screen of another workstation that was logged on to the network as a member of the Users group. Can anyone explain this or suggest a fix? TIA

This usually happens when the two users are logged in with the same user id. NT sends the messages based on the user id. Did the other person logon to the network before you and print something before you printed?

Does it happen from other machines?

I see this happen, but only when I am logged into both machines. Does this problem still persist.

Good Luck...
