    This is my first post so am looking forward to meeting new people in here.
    Here is my problem:
    I have a Win2000 pro machine that connects to a shared printer on a XP Pro box. The XP Pro box is on AD.
    You can connect to the printer fine but as soon as you restart or shut down the 2000 machine it drops the printer when it comes back up. The account on the 2000 is a power user but I also tried it from Admin and samething. The firewall on the XP machine is turned off.
    Thanks for any help/info.
