JSI Tip 5114. Windows 2000 print document property changes from Windows NT 4.0.

In Windows NT 4.0, clients that only had Print permissions could not modify document properties, which were pushed down from the Windows NT 4.0 print server.

In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, clients have user based Printing Preferences on Windows NT 5.0+ print servers.

You can set some server based printer properties that are pushed to all clients:

1. On the server, right-click the printer that you want to set default preferences for and press Properties.

2. On the Advanced tab, press Printing Defaults.

3. Specify the default printer settings that you want pushed down to all clients.
