    Thanks for your assistance concerning the problem:  My shared Pantum M6800 printer connected by USB to a win 10 pro PC is not responding printing attempts of my other win 10 pro client PC in a home network after 21H1 updating.

    The Printer functions well on the  host win 10 pro PC.

    i read that the KB5005565 should be removed in order to fix. Is it confirmed? should I remove it from both PC’s? or there is another fix?

    Many thanks

    sam

      Set the following to a DWORD value of 0 on the server:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled
      Then restart your print spooler (or just restart the computer)
      See if that fixes your issue?

        could not find in my registry under “Print” the “\RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled”

          If the RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled value is not present.

          1. Start regedit and navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print key
          2. Right-click a blank area in the right-hand panel and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value and name it RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled.
          3. The default setting for the new value should already be 0

          Note, this setting only applies to the PC the printer is directly connected to (the server) not the one trying to print remotely (the client.)

      You can uninstall the update and hide it with WUSHOWHIDE so they wont appear until you are ready to install them.
      I am wondering how many people were actually hacked by via print vulnerability, and in the contrast how many people are angry (not able to print) because of low quality patching. Maybe its better to not print at all and save our planet? 😉
