Cant add printer

By amit.puthran ·

I cant add printers from some machines, when i go to the add printer's tab i can't see any of the printers. I have 2 printers shared on my network and my network consists of machines that run windows 2000/xp.

Alternatively I can add those printers if i connect to the computer that has the printer attached locally but then i loose this connection once i reboot the computer or log off. I again have to add in the same way.

Can any one of you help me in this.

Try installing by opening Windows explorer then browse to the server in entire network -> your <domain name> -> your <server name> then you should see the printer listed double left click to install.

Do you have GPO's set to not save setings on exit for users?

Hope this helps.

1) ensure the printers are shared on the residing pc's. If shared ensure security settings are set for sharing.
2) If these printers have network sockets,
create IP's and install them directly via TCP/IP ports
