Hi all,

Setup:
- 2 servers both win2000 (both have active directory, 1 domain)
- workstations are wxp and win2000

Problem:
We have a printer connected to the parallel port on a windows xp
workstations and is shared for other computers. Another computer uses
the printer in windows and also the computer has the printer mapped on
LPT3. This is where the problem kicks in.
After some time the computer seems to drop the connection. When I look
in the command prompt at my net uses the LPT3 is also marked
disconnected.
And apparently the same thing happens to mapped network drives.

I know there is an options in the device manager that the computer can
turn off the network card to save power, and I disabled this option
but no change.

Does anyone have any ideas on this??

Greetz,
Bjorn

This usually doesn't cause any problems. Either case the default timeout is
15 minutes. From a command prompt on the *server side*
net config server /autodisconnect:-1
for no disconnect.

Setting this from the command line may turn off auto tuning for the server
service. So a better solution is to navigate to
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

and set the Reg_DWord hex value of
"autodisconnect"=ffffffff

If "autodisconnect" doesn't exist, Add it.

Hi,

The option is working, but the printer still disconnects.
Is there something else I can change/do/fix/.. because I'm running out
of ideas myself (besides putting in a printserver ofcoors)
