I have a web application in a tomcat container running as windows service, I need to print a network printer (\OTHERPC\Printer) but I cannot find it. I found the the service account cannot see shared printers and only running Tomcat as a standard user it can see the shared printers. I also try to switch user the service to "network service" without success.

How can I add shared printer to Network service user?

I tried to run psexec and many other tools to get a cmd of Network Service but I could not get access and moreover, I don't know if it is possibile and how add a shared printer via cmd.

  • Are the computers where the container and shared printer exist both in a domain? – Twisty Impersonator Dec 25 '17 at 2:07
  • No, they are in Workgroup (no domain) . – Tobia Dec 25 '17 at 8:19
