When I boot, my firewall flags spoolsv.exe "A program is trying to connect to the Internet" Name: Spooler Subsystem App Path: C:\WINNT\system32\spoolsv.exe Installed: Monday, July 11, 2005 Is this normal? Should I worry about it? Any comments? TIA, Rob

    Hi people. My I am using win 2000. My default printer stopped working would not print so I uninstalled the software and have been trying to reinstall but it gets this far where the wizard is done and waiting for the HP software to finish and it stalls while it is " initialzing Connection Manager" . The win wizard finds the printer. I have waited for an hour and no luck. I have followed the makers instructions to the letter ( 5 times) . The printer is a HP DeskJet 3745. Any help would be great Thanks Marc

At the command prompt type: telnet XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX 
(the X's indicate the current IP of the printer)
Once in the telnet mode type in ip:NNN.NNN.NNN.NNN
(the N's indicate the printer's new IP address)

Make sure your subnet mask and gateway are correct.  At 
the end of the session type in "quit" this will save your

1.Vista Printer On Network Changes IP Address

I have two ethernet hardwired network printers on my home net.
Why do the IP adresses change and what can I do to to prevent this or at 
least find an easy way to fix it when it does.
This is not an user freindly ergonomic situation MS. keeps changing ip address of printer


I have vista business and a HPc6180 printer, the network printer port is but the vista machine keeps changing the setting to

My XP machines all work fine.

Thoughts please


3.Network printer stops printing when IP address changes

I'm using Vista Home Premium.  I have a Brother 5170DN (direct network 
connection) that has been working fine with my older computers running 
earlier Windows versions.  

The trouble is that when the IP address of the printer changes, Vista is no 
longer able to print to it, so I end up having to reinstall.  The 
reinstallation adds a new TCP/IP port into the driver, and then it works fine 
until the next time.  Since my network is changing frequently right now, due 
to reconfiguration, this is a pain.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.  I have searched the support areas but 
haven't seen anything that answers the question.


4.TCP/IP address change stops printer?

I have a Brother HL-5280DW. My mac will print to it over the wired network. 
My XP machine will print to it over the wired network. Vista, however, will 
only print to it until somehow the IP address is changed. This is confusing, 
since to the best of my knowledge, the IP address has always changed and it 
never mattered on the mac or under XP. I have no idea how to fix this, but I 
do know that my frustration with Vista is reaching the point that I need to 
either get this stuff working or junk the OS.

Any ideas?

5.Modify User Permissions to Add Printers or change IP


The majority of persons on my domain have the standard "user" previlages in 
AD. The problem I am having is especially with the laptop users that some of 
them don't have the rights to change their IP Address on the laptop when they 
go overseas. How can I give the particular right so they can only change 
their IP address?

Also, the same applies to persons and printers, I'd like to give users the 
authority to add printers with changing their level.

Are they indivual settings/permissions I can set to make this happen?
