Win Pro 2000 Printer Connection

By d_zesty ·
I have a SOHO network with one Win 2K Pro for ICS and 4 Win 98's as workstations. It works. We had to move the computer to a new area of the office. Now my people want the printer hooked up to the Win 2K Pro instead accessing it off the old Win 98. The Printer has been shared but the System won't allow access without a password. How do I eliminate this password? I have no passwords set up for resources such as this.

i'm thinking you need accounts on the win2k box for all the win98 users? same username and password as they use to logon to their win98 boxes?

You may want to make sure all your computers are all in the same workgroup - which is usually "workgroup' by default

Both answer 1 and 2 are correct. On the Win2k box, each user connecting to the printer will require a username and password. This must be the same as the username on the Win 98 machines. Also, on the Win 98 machines, I believe you may need to set user-level access control in network settings and type in the name of your win2k machine. Not sure about that, I've only shared printers on Win2k server boxes with win 98 machines connecting to it.
