i have a problem with a win98 pc connecting to a win2000 server network.

i want to network a printer attached to the win98 pc so all other network pcs can use it.

problem is when i go into access control and change the user-level access control to the appropriate name server (has to be done before i can change the name of the printer and set permisions), it resets on logon to the original server.

i cant find the setting to change it for all groups on the windows2000 server, seems like the obvious places are all correct.

any help would be great :) thanks

ah man! I remember that problem! I can't remember what you do!

for what its worth, win9x networking tends to fix itself when you remove all of the important components (client for microsoft networks, TCP/IP, etc) and then add them back in again.

not a bad suggestion, i'll give it a try.

if that doesnt work, i have to find the policy file on the server that resets the domain every login.

or something like that :)

finally, used poledit but discovered that the main policy file was corrupt (could be opened in ultraedit, but not using the normal win2k utility).

made a new policy entirely, and now its all fine :)

thanks for the help
