    Hi
    I am working in a AD 2003. I added a Vista Enterprise Client to the Domain.
    Now i am testing the printmanagement Interface and have some question.
    I could add all printserver located in my site and when i am expanding the
    servers i can see and export all drivers and ports associated. But i cannot
    see any printers installed under the printer view.
    I also see that if i create a filter, it only applies to the local printers.

    It seems to me that filters and printer view only applies to local attached
    printers, is this wright and does somebody have a good article witch describs
    this. Thank's for updating a newbies.

    kind regards

  2. It sounds like the firewall is blocking the data from the server. If you
    are using the Windows firewall be sure to enable the File and Printer
    sharing ports and they need to be scoped for All computers on the network.

    Also verify that anonymous authentication is enabled on the client. The
    Windows 2000 and 2003 print servers will talk to Vista making a connection
    to the Vista machine as printservername$

    Once the print servers can connect to the client machine anonymously, the
    filters pertaining to the printers shared on the server can populate the
    filters.

    Hello Alan

    Thanks for your reply. I have suspected this allready and i turned the
    Firewall off for the domain profile. But i still cant see the printers. I can
    see all drivers and ports on each of my printservers and the printers
    associated to the ports, but no printers under printer/view and no
    possibility to applie filters. How can i enable anonymous access? Do you mean
    in the Local Security Policy? could not find any tips in help. I only now
    this setting in IIS.
