Has anyone had success in connecting Canon multi-function printers to a WAAS print queue that is available to clients?
I can create the queue and attach to it through a client, but the Windows status constantly states "Access denied, unable to connect". I can still print to it but I can't get a status on jobs either.
I've gone through the steps of registering with Kerberos to a Win2k3 DC and that all works great.
In addition, I cannot find any Canon drivers that will work with the WAAS as a print server for automatic download to a client. For instance, I have a "Canon iR2200-3300 PS3" driver associated with my print server and a printer.
Every time I try to connect a client to this test printer, I have to manually install a printer driver from the client instead of getting the auto-download from the EDGE WAE. What a pain!
Anyone else experience this as well???
You need to associate the driver that was uploaded to the WAE with the appropriate print queue. Here are the steps:
1. From Windows command prompt, connect to the WAE with administrative user:
net use \Print$ * /user:
2. Access the Print Server (Start->Run):
3. Open WAAS Print Server's 'Printers and Faxes' folder.
4. Right click on the shared printer.
5. At the bottom of the menu, select 'Properties'.
6. If asked to install Print Driver, choose NO.
7. Go to 'Advanced' tab.
8. Choose the relevant driver=s from the drop down list.
9. Click Apply.
10. Then click on 'Printing Defaults', to initialize the print driver.
11. Change 'Portrait' page setting to 'Landscape' click 'Apply'.
12. Change 'Landscape' back to 'Portrait' and click 'Apply'.
13. Optionally, you can change all other, relevant printing defaults, which will be applied to all future client driver installations.
14. Perform steps 8 to 13 for each driver that you wish to assign to that print server.
