    Hi, i am having an issue with shared printers on my network not showing up in
    the add printers wizard. This is only on some pcs. On some pcs administrators
    can add the pc but users cant. On a couple of others its ok for all usrs. On
    one in particular the printers dont show up for administrator or the users.
    As far as i can everyone has full permissions for the printer and file and
    print sharing is all ok.

    At one point it started working for users on a couple of machines and then
    15 min later after a restart they then come up as access denied. Is is a
    browse proble. Dns and netbios over tcpip all look ok also.

    any ideas.

    I wonder if another computer or Linux Box is the MasterBrowser?
    (I try to remember to set up the SBS Server as the master Browswer.)

    Do this

    See if this helps (remember at least 15 mins for Browser info to update.)

  3. Hi Paddy,

    Where are the shares located? Are any or all of these printers connected to
    and shared from workstations? Are there any printers shared from the SBS,
    either network or directly connected - and do they show up?

    Can you see or connect outside the wizard, with 'net view' or 'net use' from
    a command prompt?
