By kimOppalfens ·
Hi all,

Is it possible to add an entry
for windows 2000 professional clients
to the alternate printer drivers
of an NT4 SP6 server?

If so, how could I accomplish this?

Installing Microsoft Windows 2000 drivers on a Windows NT 4.0 server for Windows 2000 clients

If the printer already exists on the Windows NT 4.0 Server, use the following steps to add a Windows 2000 driver for use by Windows 2000 clients:
Log on to the Windows 2000 workstation using an account that has administrator privileges on the server you will be installing the drivers on.

From the Start menu, choose Run.

In the Open box, type \\servername, where servername is the name of the 4.0 server.

Open the Printers Folder on the server.

Select the printer in which you wish to add a Windows 2000 driver.

Select File/Properties, install the driver when prompted, then choose the Sharing tab.

Select the alternate driversyou wish to install, then select OK.

If you are creating a new printer on a Windows NT 4.0 Server, use the following steps to install a Windows 2000 driver on a 4.0 Server for use by Windows 2000 clients:
