NT Print services!

By jshaw ·
Ok, I'm feeling like a dimwit. I can't remember how to set up a printer on an NT print server so others can use it.

Go out and add print services on the NT server first. Then add the printer port as a LPR or whatever type of port that you want to use in order to print. Right click on NetworkNeighborhood, then select the services tab. Make certain that you havethe NT CD available or at leat the I386 directory from the CD copied to a location that you can get to.

To add more info. The server is already configured as a print server. What I don't exactly understand is A: whether to make it a local or network printer (the printer is an IP printer. No I don't want to straight IP print to it) and B: how to configure the port from there. It's a HP 5Si if that matters.

Add it so the nt server can print to it and then share it like it was local. I believe for nt you set it local to an hp port. To configure it, the printer it can be done through the print manager or the jetadmin. Clients attach to the nt system likeregular.

1. Go to the printer and print out a configuration page. Write down the Hardware Address from this page and take it with you to your NT server.

2. Install the DLC protocol on your NT Server. Reboot.

3. Add the printer using the Add Printer wizard in the Printers folder. Configure it is a local printer. When which port to connect it to, add a new Hewlett-Packard port. Enter in the hardware address you wrote down off the configuration page, or select the hardware address from the list. Give the port a descriptive name.

4. Install the necessary drivers.

5. Now, share the printer just like you would on any Win95 computer. Configure your workstations to print to a network printer using the share name you shared this printer as.

Look at one of your currently installed printers, You want to use the same type protocol and port that they are currently using. Install it as a local printer then share it.
