Network DOMAIN printer installed on WORKGROUP computer
Our Cashless system is provided by Cunninghams, they have there own computers all on the workgroup "Cunninghams"..
We have a network printer installed in thier office and I am struggling to find a way to install the printer on their office computer..
I can install the printer but obviously only after authenticating myself against the domain. This works fine untill the machine is rebooted.
Is there maybe a script that can map the printer on boot? With encrypted credentials?
Is there another method that I should be using? con2prt etc?
Can anyone please help?
Thanks in advance

cretae a user on the server that has access to one folder (and read only at that) map that folder in a script with appropriate username/password on client and your printer should authenticate

Do you need it to use the print server. You could add it as an IP printer but not if you use tracking software on the server.

As above, you could manually add the printer separately (create a TCP/IP port) on a computer within the Workgroup. I'm guessing the Workgroup and Domain are all on the same subnet?
I don't believe you can create a 'trust' as such between a Workgroup and a Domain, only Domain to Domain.

Thanks for the replies.
I have added it as a local printer using the IP address.
