Second time asking about TCP/IP or Jet Direct printing.

Maybe the answer is so simple that everyone feels it's obvious but i am in a
bind right now with my student workstations. I have upgraded to Windows XP
and Windows 2000 and now the students can't print even though i have
installed a jet direct printer as the administrator. I had the same problem
in rooms with shared printers but was able to download a script that runs on
start-up and ties the shared printer to the machine.
I would like to do the same thing with the rooms that have jet direct
printers but don't know how to use the script to do it and some students
are getting behind now because of not being able to print... Any ideas how
to make this work? Or are my Jet Directs now obsolete? I upgraded the
student machines to keep them from installing and sure don't want to give
them that right back. charlie

I found a solution but don't know if it is the best one. I went to one of
the servers and connected to the Jet Direct printer and then shared it.
Then i went back to the classroom and used my VBS script to connect the
users by putting the script in ALL USERS startup folder. It seems to be
working. Charlie
