Hi,
On our Workgroup we have a computer with 2000 Server which is being used as a client. We have connected a printer to this computer and shared it so that all the computers in the office can print to it. However whenever someone tries to print they are asked for the username and password. It only asks this the first time they try to print after turning the computer on. I have tried setting the printer permissions so that everyone can print but this has made no difference.
Does anyone have any ideas on what i can try to get this to work? All the other systems in the office run windows XP.

Thanks in advance

Create accounts with the same name/password as each of the users connecting, and give them rights to the printer. The password prompts will go away. You could also enable the Guest account, though I prefer the passwords.
