I have a W2K server environment and have 7 locations that all tie back to the
main office. In one of my locations, we have a number of desktops and some
have printers that I would like to be shared amongst everyone in the office.

I have one of the PC's, logged into the network, with the printer attached
via parallel port and that pc can print to it fine. I then set the
properties of the printer to share and give it a share name and it is listed
in Active Directory, but when someone else in the office tries to connect to
it, they get a message that they cannot attach to the printer. The pc
connected to the printer is running XP SP2.

Can anyone out there give me a direction on what to look for?

Thanks,

Jeff Shanker

Check the permissions on the printer.
