How to access a shared printer as non-domain user

Hi,

I have the following setup:

- W2k3 Server and a XP Professional Workstation both part of a domain.
- Shared Printer on the server

When logged in locally on the workstation, I'd like to use the shared
printer on the server without entering additional credentials (e.g.
without using a domain account).

On the workstation I installed the printer using

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ga /n\\server\printershare /
j"LanMan Print Services"

This way I added a per machine printer connection which should be
independent of the user that logs in.
But I get an access denied error when trying to get the properties
page of the printer. And printing is also not possible.

I checked with the permissions of the printer share and added the
Everyone group and Guest account but I still had no access. I even
added the computer object of the workstation and gave it full access
to the printer but nothing changed, I still had no access.

Does anybody see a way to solve this problem? Or isn't this "per
machine printer connection" ment to work like this?

Regards, Stefan

You need to enable the Guest account on the server, by default it is
disabled.
