Connecting a non-domain computer to a shared printer on a domain

Posted: 02-03-2004, 09:11 PM
Hi

Here's the situation that I'm struggling with. I have a domain workstation, MYDOMAIN/PC1, that has a local printer that I've shared. I set permissions to allow specific users on the domain to have full permissions when accessing this printer. Connecting other computers on the domain to this printer has been perfectly straightforward

However, I have a laptop on the network, PC2, that is not a member of the domain. I would like to give the user of this laptop permission to connect to this printer. Unfortunately, I go to the permissions tab of the shared printer, and I can't add the laptop user. I'm only able to give permissions to local users and domain users

I tried adding a local user on PC1 that matches the local account on PC2 and gave it printing permissions. However, this didn't work... as I suspected it might not

Any advice would be very much appreciated

-Mike
