Put your heads together

By mmbc_voltron ·
I have an Apple laserWriter 16/600 PS printer connected to the network as a shared printer off the server. Any users that I create have to be an administrator to be able to print the printer. I can not print if I take the user out of the Network admin group.
I have looked in the security settings on the printer tabs and added the correct groups and gave full permission to everything and everyone but still a user can't print unless they are part of the Administrators.
What can I do to troubleshoot this more. I have one user that can print to it and they are not an administrator.
I set up a new user and added them to the same group as the person that could print and still they cannot.

Any thoughts would be great.

What are the OS being used. Can you create a user group just for that? You also might want to check the different between the one that can print not being a admin and the other system that can not print from can not print not being a admin check net setting. That is all I can able to give you unless you tell me more info. However, I will be the first to tell I am not strong with mac os.

I did create a new group and that didn't work. I have looked at the user that can print vs the other users that can. They are all part of the same group. But now the user is saying he can't print.

Is your printer directly connected to the server or you've been using LAN connected printer?

I have been using a lan printer.

Then try to install the printer localy on the user PC/MAC with a TCP/IP port instead of LPT1 and use the printer LAN IP address - with this config you'll avoid sharing the printer through the server...

Question:
- if you add the LAN printer on your server (by using its IP addresse) and then share it to the others through the server, what is the issue? Can you print from a client computer?
