Share problems with xp-home and 2000 pro workstation

February 12th, 2007 - 12:07 pm ET by Melvin Edward | Report spam
I have a 2000 pro workstation that shares a Xerox network printer, I have a
7 Windows 2000 Pro workstations and 1 xp-home that works fine but one
xp-home is trying to use the shared printer, \\system\xerox , the 2000 Pro
workstation has the xp as a user and password.
On the xp-home workstation I can browse and find the printer or add the
\\system\xerox printer, and it asked for the user name and password, It
shouldn’t have asked for that if the 2000 pro saw the user, but I put the
user and password in and it all works until you log off, or restart.
Any ideas?

Make sure to use the same user name & password on all machines.

Thanks for your reply!
but this would be a bad idea due to Security reasons, this user is not
permitted in some areas.

In this case you create the user's account only on those machines
where he needs access, and apply NTFS security restrictions as
appropriate.

I have done that, the user has an account w/ password on the 2000 pro
workstation
the same as his login on the xp home workstation, he also has ntfs
permissions in the printer and a folder as well. I added the folder in hopes
that it woild log hin in. but it woek, but i noticed if i go to the folder
using the explorer that it ask for the user and password and then i have
access to the folder and printer as well. Some place it's not seeing him log
in.
