Only works in administrator account

by lynnecarla In reply to network printer

I have a printer shared by a newer winxp machine on the Lan. I can access it from another computer only from adminitrative accounts. the others, Power Users, cannot see the printer, even tho I have added it in the administrator account. I can see other printers shared by other computers, but not this one. this one and the others are HP 1020 laserjets. I have made sure security settings allow adding a printer, and that all users have full permissions.
What am I missing? what else can I do?
