WE JUST SETUP WEB SERVER 2003 AND ARE WANTING TO HAVE A PRINTER SHARE FROM IT NOW AS U WELL KNOW THE WEB SERVER CANT BE PROMOTED TO A DOMAINE AND SO WE DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NEEDING TO LOGIN THE SERVER TO PRINT SINCE IT'S A STANDALONE COMPUTER LIKE OUR XP'S WE HAVE AND WHEN THE PRINTER IS ADDED IT ASKS DO U WANT TO SHARE THIS PRINTER I SAID YES.... BUT AFTER THE PRINTER WAS INSTALLED IT DIDNT SHRE... SO I DID WHAT U NORMALY DO WITH CLIENT COMPUTER'S WENT TO PROERTIES ON THE PRINTER AND CLINK ON SHARE, IT'LL ASK ARE U USER U SAY YES.... I GET THE ERROR ( PRINTER SETTINGS COULD NOT BE SAVED. REMOTE CONNECTIONS TO THE SPRINTER SPOOLER ARE BLOCKED BY A POLICY SET ON YOUR COMPUTER ) NOW I HAVE TRIED STOPING THE PRINT SPOOLER TO ALLOW IT TO LET ME SHARE IT WAS AN IDEA BY A FRIEND WONT WORK SHAREING CAUSE I TURNED OF THE PRINT SPOOLER, WHICH BASICALLY MAKES THE PRINTER NOT THERE TO THE OS I HAVE GONE THROUGH ALL THE SECURITY PERMSSION'S THAT I CAN THINK OF CHECKING.. AND KEEP IN MIND WE ARE LOGED IN AS THE ADMIN .. SO I'M NOT SURE WHAT I AM MISSING OR IF U SIMPLY CAN'T SHARE A PRINTER ON THE WEB SERVER......EVEN IF THE OPTION IS THERE TO DO SO......OR SOMETHING I'M MISSING WHEN I CHECKED THE PERMSSIONS AND SECRITY AND IF HE CAN TBE HOOKED THAT WAY THEN I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO LOOK INTO A SERVER PRINTER
