  • Printer Preferences


    I want to have a shared printer on my print server which has specific settings. I have set this up with no problems but when i connect to the printer from a client pc the specific setting i changed have now gone back to default. Any ideas how i can make sure that the settings stay the same when someone connects to it?

    Many thanks for any help!

      Open Properties of that printer.
      On the 'General' tab, click Printing Preferences
      Set your Preferences for the clients.
      Then you must re-connect actively the clients with the printer.

      Do not use Printing Defaults on the 'Advanced' tab this will not affect the clients.
      If you right click on the printer and select Printing Preferences instead,
      this sets the printing preferences for the user currently logged on at the
      server, not the default for other users connecting to that printer.
