If your IT department has to manage every user’s
printer connections and using a GPO isn’t an option
for whatever reason, I highly recommend you explore
using the PMPMgr plug-in created by Bill Stewart
(see “Per-Machine Printer Connections + Custom
Plug-In,” May 2006, InstantDoc ID 49741). This plug-in
provides a nice GUI for per-machine printer management
(i.e., all printers on a particular computer).
