Default Printer Problems

By hereigo311 ·
We have a teacher lounch at the school. We have 3 printers in that louch. Color, a black and white, and poster printer. I would like to set the print black and white to be the default printer on all 7 computers in the lounch. The problem is no matter what i tried, it changes for deferent user. Everyone has a roaming profile, but i use the gaprint command to install the printers on those computers. Teachers keep using the poster printer, over and over which keep wasting paper. Is there any way to force a printer to be the default for anyone that is using any of those computers.

This should solve your problem.

You will need the file con2prt.exe installed on each workstation. It can be found on the resource kit CD. Create a batch file to run on startup. EG:

con2prt /f

con2prt /cd \\"severname"\"printer share name" Black
con2prt /c \\"severname"\"printer share name" Colour
con2prt /c \\"severname"\"printer share name" Poster
