Network Printer JUST on one computer saying: "Access Denied, Unable to connect" ??
Can anyone please help me with this one as ive not seen it before happen on just one computer...
We have a network printer installed and shared on the network, it works for everyone else in the school on any other PC and it was also working on this computer before the holiday.
Now when anyone logs into this computer and adds this shared printer they get "Access Denied, Unable to connect". All other network printers work.
I have tried:
Removed and re-added the printer as admin.
Restarting the print service
Removing the drivers (including following registry removal guides), when installed the drivers are installed again.
Checking that the IP is correct
Checking the shared permissions
Checking that the machine can contact the printer via the webmin and also pinging it. all fine.
Can anyone please suggest why this might be happinging or seen this before?

What OS ?
Has anything changed on the computer since it last worked?
You could try
1) Rejoin computer to the domain
2 Reimiage the computer ( Not really a solution since you dont find the root of the issue, however in my experience atleast, it fixes the mass majority of random problem if you need it fixed asap )

Might try rejoining to domain tomorrow. The weird thing is that all other network printers can be installed and work perfectly on this PC, just not this one.
I really dont want to be reinstalling it, so much science software on it
Sorry: XP Pro SP2
