Renaming Network Printer

By worley84 ·
I work in a mixed environment of Netware 5 servers and any flavor of Windows clients. We have just recently gotten our first PC's with XP preloaded. I need to replace a printer, and have the clients use the new printer with the exact same name as the old printer because of reports from MS Access.

I have been unable to find out how to rename network printers in XP. The option does not appear when you right-click for properties. So how do I get there from here?

Thanks for your ideas.

Go into the printers window, right click on the printer you want to rename, click on "sharing...", then where it says share name...that is where you change the share name.

Let me know if this helps...

The sharing tab tells me to run the Network Setup Wizard. The share name is on the Netware server. Any other ideas?
