Network printer

By gunasekaran_k007 ·
Hi Guru's,

I have one issue on network printer, my LaserJet printer is installed in windows 2003 server and it was shared.

I'm tried to access that printer from other PC but in the same network only.

First time its works when I add that printer, by this steps :
(Add Printer -> A Network Printer, or printer attached to another computer -> Connect to this printer : \\system name\printer name -> Finished)

After restarting the system, I'm unable to access the printer, once again I have re-configure the printer. Then only I'm able to access the printer. This happens every restarting the system.

Could anyone give some solution for this issue.

Network Printer has to be Re-added after Boot

by CaptBilly1Eye In reply to Network printer


I see that your issue is from a long time ago. But if you are still looking for a solution...

If your printer is connected directly to the network via a network cable, obtain the IP address for the printer or assign one to it.
Then install the printer using the Wizard but rather than browsing to the printer on the network, designate it with the IP address.
This should resolve your issue of having to re-configure whenever you restart.
