   Two hosts are connected in a same network.One host(Win 7 OS & print server) is having printer connected to it directly and  i have shared that printer. Second host (win 10 OS) is connected with the shared printer and it is works fine.But,once it shut down ,it is  not working.To make it work again,i have to remove the shared printer from the list,and i have to re-connect it .(Happening daily ) ;(

Both systems are connected with domain .Can anyone provide solution for this ?..please...

Hello Mushtaq77

How is the shared printer distributed is it group policy or are you manually mapping the printer each time. If it's the latter are you mapping it using the hostname of the printer server (\\PRINTSERVER) or the IP address of the print server (192.168.x.x)?

Kind regards,


It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Words and ideas can change the world.
