The "fix" is to download trusted, package-aware print drivers from the printer manufacturer; however, since not all manufacturers will produce these drivers, there is a work around that I found here: Cannon Forum - Package-Aware Print Drivers (Note: This does not work for unsigned drivers, but there are plenty of tutorials out there for self-signing a print ...

I had this exact same problem. After I deleted a Group Policy printers kept coming back all over the place. The only solution for me was: Downloading PSTools Running CMD as administrator Run the command psexec -i -s c:\windows\regedit.exe (make sure you don't have regedit open already, otherwise it gives an error) Delete all keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\...

HP has discontinued the 1300 LaserJet line of printers. This tells me the printer in question is old and quite possibly has a physical fault of some sort. I would say that troubleshooting an old, $92 printer is not a good use of anyone's time, so replace it and move on. Preferably with a better/newer model, but Amazon apparently has new ones (1300 ...

I am going to make an assumption that your pc's are part of a workgroup and not part of a domain. Netbios broadcasts are not passed on by the router so you aren't going to be able to find this by name. For more information lookup broadcast domains. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadcast_domain If you want to be able to look up the printer by name than ...

Using Group Policy Preferences is the way of mapping printers (and drivemaps) these days. Nothing even come close to the flexibility you have with the plethora of targeting rules. We run a RDS environment with 600 users spread across 80 different locations. What we did was to build a single GPO targeting all the users. This GPO controls the mapping and ...

Polcies -> Preferences -> Do not scan fragile devices -> Scan Network Printers Bear in mind that this may result in pages of random characters/service fingerprints being printed, and the printer may end up crashing. This is the default setting for a reason.

The standard 'total page count' is at 1.3.6.1.2.1.43.10.2.1.4.1.1 Different models use different OID for details, such as number of pages faxed/copied/printed/duplex/color/black/....

On the GPO you need to check the box "Run in logged-in user's security context"

Have you tried Print Services of Windows Server? Technet: Windows Server Print Services Specific Instructions here: To install printers to groups of users or computers by using Group Policy Open the Administrative Tools folder, and then double-click Print Management. In the Print Management tree, under the appropriate print server, click ...

I tried to just comment on tony Benjamin's answer, but apparantly I can't do that without 50 reputation. I was having the same problem, but with a Brother HL-2280DW and I fixed it (or at least got to the right menu item) by ALMOST following tony Benjamin's steps in the control menu in the printer itself. Specifically what I did was: Go to General Setup ...

Try a snmpwalk on OID1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.3.9.4.2.1.4.1.12.2.5. This will give you the used area for the different paper types. Unit is square inch.

Try to set Computer Maintenance to Off please. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\Maintenance MaintenanceDisabled (DWORD32) = 1 It's an all or nothing maintenance, as on my side I had to turn it off for another reason. I deploy icon for html resource that needed a VPN access, but when the maintenance was run it used ...

You can use SPLVIEWER to check what is sent to print device

It doesn't make a difference performance wise, but I recommend assigning fixed IP addresses by DHCP over manually configuring IP settings at each device. If you assign a fixed IP address to the printer from your DHCP server you can change the IP address and other network settings in future without visiting the printer. Taking this approach is nice because ...

Folks here's the script(s) I used in a former life. This was on a 2003 print server, but I'd presume them to work fine in 2008 as well. I got most of this online from someone's blog post but I don't recall where...it was years ago. How it works: auditprinters.bat = batch file (scheduled daily) that does the following: Parses through input via FOR ...

Try this: I opened the "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security" and clicked the "Restore defaults" button, and that solved the problem, and I can now share files again. You could also do this from the command line: netsh advfirewall reset ....sounds like more than one person online found this to fix the issue. But...you could look and just make sure file ...

One one of the computers where the printers are not installed, run the following: gpresult /h gpresult.html From the user's logon context. This will show the user's group memberships, and the GPO's applied/denied. This will help you narrow down if it is an issue with group membership not being picked up, or if the GPO's aren't being processed, or ...

For Konica BizHub C224e you must use the C554 driver. Don't ask me why, only this one works correctly.

Please change the printer driver you are using. Those issue is because the language the driver use is not recognized by the printer. Its like using a postscript driver for a printer that does not support postscript. If all drivers does not work try with a basic hp laserjet 4 driver, even if its a dell, as the basic pcl language was born on that model. If ...

Apparently this is an issue with Windows Server if the server has the RDS role AND is using a remote print server where client-side rendering is enabled. An easy fix is to add registry entries to enable 15-minute trimming of the printer list, and automatic removal at logout: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Providers\...

It's not obvious nor intuitive. In ADUC from the menu bar select View... Users, Contacts, Groups and Computers as containers then find the print server in the left pane, select it and you'll see the printer as a "sub-object" of the computer object in the right pane.

You're deploying it two different ways. If you want to deploy it via Group Policy Preferences using Item Level Targeting than you do not need to and should not deploy it with Group Policy from the Print Management console on your print server.

Speaking as someone who doesn't consider herself a Mac guru... Airprint is, as near as I can tell, reliant upon Bonjour. You would have to somehow convince the AP to route Bonjour packets between the two access points, or use a different protocol. I don't have any personal experience with your Comcast access points, either, but based on this Superuser ...

I can only give you a partial answer: The Preferences are XML files. You can find the corresponding file here: \\YOUR_DOMAIN\SYSVOL\DOMAIN_NAME\Policies\ID_OF_THE_GPO\Machine\Preferences\Printers\Printers.xml and you'll find something like that: As you can see, the filters are in the <Filters> node: so, you can create them with a script/editor for ...

A machine running Windows 7 or 8 is not a server, by definition. It will allow a single client to connect to a remote desktop, and it will limit overall client connections (file sharing, printer sharing) to ten clients, if I don’t misremember. Instead you will want to look into actual Windows Server operating systems (2016, 2019), and license up to use the ...

You can use the following group policies on the session host: Computer Configuration -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> Printer Redirection -> Do not set default client printer to be default printer in a session and -> Do not allow client printer redirection

If you're not looking for advanced printing functions, try installing the printer locally with the simplest driver that comes pre-installed, HP Deskjet 600 for example, but make sure your server has the same driver pre-installed.

Router B is not filtering anything, it simply has different IP address. Seems you are connecting one router with another via WAN port. Instead, you could use first router to act as DHCP, and put them under the same IP range. That's it.
