    I am receiving "access denied" when domain users try to NET USE to set up a
    printer share while logged onto the Telnet server. Is there a policy I can
    change to allow them to do this without being a part of the administrators
    group ?

  2. What do you mean by "telnet server" ?

    You don't generally use 'net use' commands to map network printers... they
    can either browse to the server where the printers are shared, such as
    \\servername\ and right-click/connect on a network printer....or use the Add
    Printer wizard. Or, you can assign the printers via script/GPO if you know
    how.

    You also say 'set up a printer share' - but that doesn't make sense in this
    context.

    The clients are telnetting into a Windows 2003 Server running the Telent
    Server service. Each client session must execute "net use lpt5:
    \\servername\sharename" to print to the printer during their telnet session.
    Unless they are members of the administrators group, they receive "access
    denied" when simply trying a "Net" command including "net /?".
