dear all,

one user is logging on in his machine as administrator locally.

but he want to print on printer which is shared on a pc joined to DOMAIN

now i am connecting as start ....run....\\<computer name>\share name

it is asking for username and password

i am typing username and password of domain user

it is connecting fine ..it is printing also.

but after restart of machine it is not printing...saying RPC server not available

thats becoz connection is not made with the domain PC. or becoz this pc or user (administrator) dont have rights to connect to the printer

tell me how will i connect to the same printer after restart. becoz i dont want to add this printer again and again using start ...run.....\\<computer name>\share name then it will again ask for username and password


thanks

go to start > settings > printers and faxes

click on "add printer"
make sure the "network printer" radio button is selected and press next
make sure the "connect to this printer" radio button is selected then add the printer into in the line bellow that (should be \\<server name>\<printer name>) then press next
it should ask you for the domain username and password...put that in and if the box to remember the PW is available...tick that...once you're done...the printer should stay connected after the reboot
