Printer setting

By supermomo ·
hi there

i have a HP 4050 connected control by a window 2000 print server. On the print server property for the printer, the default paper is set to A4.

On a client W2K professional machine, we setup a connection to the printer too and we change the local paper size property of that same printer to A4 too. But when i close the printer tab and open it again, the local printer paper size property change back to letter size again.

Could anyone advise me what's wrong? On other machine, it's not giving this problem.

Printer setting

This will set printing preferences for all users. Individual users can set them at their workstation as well. Read the whole thing, this by the way is out of online help in W2K.


Open Printers.
Right-click the printer for which you want to set the default printing preferences, and then click Properties.
On the Advanced tab, click Printing Defaults.
Click the Layout and Paper/Quality tabs and the Advanced button to see the available choices, and specify the default settings.Notes

You can change the default printing preferences only if you have the Manage Printers permission. For information about printing security permissions, see Related Topics.
To open Printers, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
The default preferences you set, which can specify options such as the page orientation, the tray from which paper is fed to the printer, and the number of copies to print, will be the default settings for any user who connects to this printer. Individual users can customize these settings by right-clicking a printer in the Printers folder, and then clicking Printing Preferences.
