I am running Win2k server but still using Windows NT4 clients. When I try to add printer drivers on the server, I have the choice to add drivers for Windows 95/98 and NT4. However, I cannot add the HP400N-PS driver for NT4 because it is the same as for Win2k. I have added this driver already for the Win2k Pro PCs and adapted the options for A4 paper.
When I add a printer on a NT4 client PC, the driver from the Win2k server is loaded correctly. However, the default paper size is still "letter" and it is impossible to change that from the NT4 client. Why are the default settings from the server working for W2k Pro PCs but not for Windows NT4 PCs? Is there a workaround?
