Pinting from Win95 Workgroup to 2003 Server Shared Printer

By cochranes ·
I have a Win 2003 Server Domain. I also have a few Win 95 systems in a workgroup, these systems get DHCP servered with the correct DNS and WINS server setttings. How can I get the Win 95 systems to be able to print to a shared printer in the domain? When I go to add the network printer and put the path \\servername\printershare it prompts me for a password.

join the domain.

upgrade to W2K or XP and join the machine to the domain. Only other option is to provide user name and password. there's not really any other way unless you try to hack the domain.

note: W95 isn't compatible with W2003 domain . There is a SMB signing and encryption requirement that W95 can not do. Better to get W2K or XP Pro.
