    Logical printers on Server 2003 showed off line immediately after hardening
    the network. XP PCs work just fine.
    Disabling the SNMP on the port configuration of the driver is not an option
    because the driver is setup to print to a queue and certain application need
    the SNMP to monitor the print jobs.
    What is the security setting that won't allow the SNMP communication between
    the driver on the server and the printer in the network, please?
    Why XP PCs are not affected although they are on the same subnet?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. You may need to ask someone in a network newsgroup. If the application
    monitoring SNMP does not use the spooler, you can disable SNMP on the ports.
