network printing with win2000

By RG11 ·
I am not all that experienced with windows 2000. Here is the situation. I just hooked up verizon DSL. I also hooked up a 4 port Linksys DSL router that allows me to share my internet connection with 3 computers. One pc has a printer attached through parallel port. I want to be able to print from any pc. What do I have to do.

Right click on the printer that u want to share - go to properties - go to sharing tab. Click the option to share the printer.

On other pc's run the add printer wizzard and select network printer option then browse my network places for the pc with the printer.

good luck

I did this. When I went into my network places, and clicked on the computer that the printer was attached to-nothing was there. ??

I am using DHCP through the router.

Are all computers win2k? If you have some Win9X computers you need to enable file and print sharing.

uhh.. besides the share, you need to create user accounts for the other clients to access the printer

Set a hard coated ip for the printer. Insert this into the host files of all pc,s as well as adding it to the router. You can install tha printer as a local printer on each pc creating a new port for tcp/ip printing as the ip address.
