Net Use Prompts for Password

Added 05/03/02  - Article ID#: K000042


There are many layers of security in Windows and Novell.  If they are not set up correctly, the Net Use command may prompt for a user name and/or password.  These prompts must be eliminated for the shared printer to function with RDP, since RDP does not pass user names or passwords to the Net Use command.  There are many possible places to eliminate the password:

  1. If the Printer is on a Windows 95/98/ME machine, make sure that"Require a password" is not checked when sharing the printer.
  2. If the printer is connected to a Windows 2000/XP machine, make sure the share permissions are set to "Everyone".  Also make sure that each user is in the same domain as the workstation with the printer.
  3. If the printer is connected to a Windows 2000 or XP machine, and if using a Novell Server without a Microsoft Domain Controller, the user name of each person that wishes to print to the printer must be added to the local user group of the Windows 2000 or XP machine where the printer is attached.
