Network printers under Windows XP

Posted: 03-24-2009, 08:14 PM
I have set up eleven of these under my user account and would like for them
to appear in three others also, without having to add them manually in each
one; all four have administrative rights. This is a Toshiba Tecra A7 laptop
and is a member of a domain rather than a workgroup. Does anyone have any
suggestions?

Use the printui.dll to globally add the printers as "per-machine
connections", this will make the printers available to all users who log
on to the machine.

rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /ga /n\\machine\printer

For help on the printui.dll do:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /?
