Network printing problem

By ds_belcher ·
We have recently started using windows 2000/xp on client machines in our network. I have a printer to one of the machines and shared it in the usual way. I have then logged on to the other machines with Admin rights and set up the machine to printto the printer accross the network. My problem is that when anybody other than the user I used to set up the printer logs on to the network the printer does not appear in the printers folder and thus they cannot print.
Is there a simple way to remedy this problem.

Network printing problem

If the printer is shared off one of the client PC's I think you need to set up a group on the server called 'printers', add all of the users on the network who need to print to the printer to that group and add that group locally on the 2000/XP machine that shares the printer?
