Network Printer problems

By Lurch82 ·
I am having an issue with connecting to a network printer. The printer is connected to a server running server 2003 and the workstation is running xp/pro.

All acounts are able to access the printersave on and it is giving the "Access Denied, unable to print" message.

On the server the acess to the printer has been provided to the "Everyone" acount and the "Print operators" acount with full control yet this one account on this one system cannot access the printer.

One item about this one account, which is an administrator account on the local machine, the account is NOT password protected but all others are.

Any insight s to why this one account cannot access the server would be appreciated.

Domain or workgroup

by Bapster In reply to Network Printer problems

I missed if you said if the environment was a domain or workgroup. Try adding a password to this admin account and see if that solves the problem. It is probably a gp setting, or default security setting that will not allow accounts w/o passwords to access shared resources.
