    Printer Issues with XP Pro


    At work, everyone has printers automatically showing up on their operating system. These are shared printers from other workstations and indicate this under the name of the printer. At first I thought people were sharing their printers, but then I found out they weren't. Does anyone know why this automatically happens.

    Says AUTO "name of the printer"
    "name of the workstation"

    I'm wondering if this has to do with them running in a workgroup. If so, is there anyway I can disable this?

    You didn't supply an OS in your question, but in case it is XP then I think THIS might answer your question.

    Otherwise can you provide some more details if you still have this question/problem.

    [Edit] Ok...before I answer I should drink coffee ...I just read your title again [/Edit]
    Back when I was a boy, we carved our own IC's out of wood.
