Access is Denied when setting up local printer port

Posted: 02-10-2009, 02:22 PM
Hi,

I have 2 vista laptops that are connected over the LAN. One of the
vista laptop (laptop A) is connected to a Epson LQ 300 dotmatrix
printer locally on the usb port. From the other vista laptop (laptop
B) I can browse and print to this network printer through printer
sharing. However I have a need to add a local port to laptop B to
access this printer as we need to configure the printer name locally,
when I tried this UNC path \\laptopA\sharedprinter, I will get this
access is denied message and I will see a print job named "Remote
Downlevel Doc" on the sharedprinter.

UAC and Firewall are all turned off to eliminate the cause of the
denial issue.

How can I successfully connected this sharedprinter as local port
printer? Any help is appreciated.



Regards
Zofia

enable UAC reboot, then add the port.

If you have Ultimate, launch printmanagement.msc and add the port from
there.

Just an update, manage to resolve this issue by granting everyone
write access to the spooler printer directory in windows in laptopA.
