Well, the reason i'm asking this because I got it to work in Windows 2003 
Server where all my printers can "put" on the web 
(http://www.mywebsite.com/printers) so people who access 
http://www.mywebsite.com/printers can see all my printers, then they can 
connect and print to it.  Of course I'll require username & password 
before they can access printer resources.

I hope this clear up my goal a little bit.

Many thanks for your help,
