Access Denied; Unable to connect.

By Ciscodude ·
In a W2K domain, the server shares all printers. HP 4200 and 3500 show the status: "Access Denied; Unable to connect" on W2k and XP workstations, bur server status shows "Ready". Other HP printers show "Ready" on workstations. All printers will print, but user cannot see print jobs in queue on "Access Denied. Unable to connect." printers. Has anyone seen this problem, or do you have an Idea as to why it exists and how to fix it?

is this an Active Directory environment? if so when you added them as a network resource did you publish it in Active Directory?

also, what are the permissions for the shared printers? minimum the everyone group should have print permissions. add in the domain users group with print permissions to the shared printer.

Thi sis not really an answer, but I want to tag onto the question. My problem is almost exactly the same, but ACLs are set properly, and the printers are published in AD. The problem seems to be related to the fact that the printserver is a NT4 server. If I add printers hosted by XP, they show properly. Need some help.
