    Adding a printer.

    Ok so we have some machines on site that are not on the domain for various reasons...
    The problem I am having is everytime the machines are restarted they lose the autentication to use the printer.

    I am open to ideas to resolve this... I was looking at scripts but all the ones I have found only work with .exe files.

    I hope this is enough information, reallly dont know what else to say.

    Any help would be great I am getting a right ear bashing over this.

    if they are jusy loosing auth set up a user with absolutely minimal rights and add a quick batch file to all user startup folder
    net use f: \\server\printuser$ /user:domain\printuser printer /persistent:no
    will map a drive and thus authenticate
