How to share a printer in Win98se

By kelly.irwin ·
Windows98se box needs local printer shared out to Domain Users. I only see the peer to peer setting under Sharing for the printer. What am I forgetting. The machine is set to logon to the domain. It can see networks shares and participate in thedomain. Is it a network service that is not installed?

How to share a printer in Win98se

With the opening screnn of "Network Properties", there is a large button below...labled "File and Printer sharing"

Click on this and place a check mark in the second box labled "enable printer sharing".

Once that is done, and the system restarts, open "Start>Settings>printers" and select the local printer you would like to share by Right Clicking on it.

From here you can share the printer, define it's shared name, and set minimal restrictions on it's use.

As long as Netbios supportis enabled on your network protocol, the printer will soon show up on your Browse listings, and other network users will be able to set up network printing to this printer.

This machine may become a workgroup of 1, but it will show up when you open network neighborhood, and browse your network.

Good Luck...have fun ;-)
