I added a new laptop to our network then added a shared printer(HP LaserJet front area) .
The printer name is \\ADMINMNGR\\HP LaserJet Front Area. The printer is connected to another user's pc which serves as the host pc. If the host pc is offline the newly added laptop is unable to print to the printer.
How can I add the printer to the laptop and make the printer available when the host machine is offline?
The user report this only became a problem when his userid(login) was changed. Only after his userid was changed he was unable to print once the host pc is offline.
