Printing to anetwork printer from a desktop not on the domain

By PowerIon3 ·
Ever felt like a Blithering idiot? I do currently I am trying to get multiple desktops, not a part of the domain, to print to multiple Lexmark network printers. In 2000 and XP this task is easy you add a local printer with a created TCP/IP port with the correct IP address and tell it to print. However in 98, ME, and yes even NT 4.0 I have not been able to identify the correct way to accomplish this task.

Redirect a LPT port.

.
use
net view \\xx.xx.xx.xx
to get share name on print server.

net use lpt1 \\xx.xx.xx.xx\printer
to redirect.

You can also create a print server on a NT/2k etc box, and attach 9x wks through it.

Find the Software

by Roger99a In reply to Printing to anetwork prin ...

Win98/ME/NT4 will require the proper software to talk to a TCP/IP printer. HP JetDirect or whatever the printer manufacturer has should do. If you can't find that then set up a Win2000/XP Workstation and use it as a print server, as long as you don't have too many clients printing at the same time.
