To share printer in Win 2000 networkLocked
I have a little network without DOMAIN of 4 PCs with Win 2000 Pro SP2 installed. One of this PC is sharing Internet access and the printer directly connected to this PC. If in any of the others PC you go to Printers folder, you will see that the printer is disable (gray letters and Icon) an is click on it, the message in red letters saying “the printer is not connected” appear and of course you can not use it. Now, if before doing that you access the PC sharing the printer thru Network Networkhood and type user name and password when is prompted, the printer in the Printers folder will be ready and connected and accesible for everybody. But when the PC are shuttdown or restarted, in order to use the printer, you have to do all proccess again.
What to do so the users of the others 3 PC can use the printer without accesing first thru Network networkhood and the printer be enable and accesible every time thay start Windows or restart the PC?
