I am sharing a printer on my network through a windows server 2008. When I access the printer from any computer running xp or later, it asks my my log in information and I connect without a problem. When i try and access the printer from a windows 2000 computer, I get an error saying access is denied, (without even asking me my login information).
I believe the problem is with group policy issues between the server 2008 and the windows 2000 but I'm not sure. How can I navigate around this issue. If it helps I'm fine with opening up the printer to everyone, not requiring a login (if possible), so long as no one has any access to the rest of the server. I do require the printer be shared through the server however, (so administrators can pause/un-pause the printer and manage the print queue.)
