NDPS Windows Logon box

We ve the following problem on one Notebook.

Notebook:
3 different controlled access NDPS printers installed
2 local printers installed
Windows 2000 Professional

When a user is working offline (workstation only) at home everything is
fine without Logon dialogbox popups. When the user starts a bordermanager
VPN client to access Groupwise Online modus or opening Worddocument etc.
After some minutes a Novell Logon dialog box appears and it is repeating
every 2 minutes. When we do a "net stop spooler" at the notebook the Logon
dialog box disappears and no longer popups. The user does not logon to the
Novell tree, he is only making a vpn connection. In someway the printers
are polled by a piece of software.

In which way can this be fixed because this didn't happen before.

We already removed the networkprinters and including the drivers. And
after that we reinstalled them.

well, that's normal behaviour as soon as the box can physically connect to
the printer. as a tough solution you could set

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Print\Never Login\Never Login
to 1

this will keep the print provider from ever triggering a login dialog.

Ok, thanks for your answer. I will try the option you suggested.

I ve tested the registry-option, but it didn't help. Stopping the spooler
fixes the problem for only the moment, until rebooting the computer.

Is there an other option we can try?
