How can I disable Windows 2000 Server's Web Printing feature?

A. By default, Win2K servers display printers on a Web page at http:///printers . To disable this Web-based display (and thus the Web Printing), perform the following steps:

  1. Start a registry editor (e.g., regedit.exe).
  2. Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers registry subkey.
  3. From the Edit menu, select New, DWORD Value.
  4. Enter the name DisableWebPrinting, then press Enter.
  5. Double-click the new value, set it to 1, then click OK.
  6. Exit the registry editor.
  7. Restart the server for the change to take effect.
