    I have tried to put this question to WindowsXP.security_admin group but they
    didn't accept it or they did not put it up, so I try this one.
    We have applied Windows XPs firewall (xp sp2) and now we don't get the "Show
    informational notifications for network printers" any more. I can solve that
    in two ways

    1. I open up file and print sharing for all computers
    2. I open up for the program spoolsv.exe for all computers

    The problem is that I just want to open up this for my Windows server 2003
    print servers, but when I do that it will not work. Which port are the
    function using and what machines are involved ?

    Please help me out
