select default printer according to network connections?
Is there a way to set Vista to use a certain default printer when connected
to a given network (office), and another when connected to another network
(home)?

Re: select default printer according to network connections?
For my office users with a laptops, I have it check (by IP address) to
see what network they are attached to and I then map and set default
printers for the office or the home environment, as necessary.

There are many KIX scripts that will do this fairly easily.
