SETTING UP A LAN AND NETWORK PRINTER

By meltvn ·
Hi

I suppose that this might be a simple question to some of you but I do not know where to turn else for good advice.

I must set up a small private network for six computers in a LAN environment. Connected to the LAN are one network printer and one plan printer. Also one local printer, a Xerox XJ6 DeskJet witch is connected to a Win 2000 operating system that has no compatible driver as far as I know.

I am running NetBEUI and TCP/IP of witch TCP/IP has got the Class C IP address rangeof 192.0.0.193 – 199 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0. These IP addresses are adjusted to the LAN printer’s settings and the printer has got a gateway set as 192.0.0.192. It is an HP printer.

I can get only one computer connected to the LAN printer but not any of the other computers, though they can ping the printer. The rest of the systems are operating on Win 98 and is set up as a Windows Workgroup with ordinary file sharing witch is working fine. In addition to the Win computers, is there a Apple printer

I assume that you configured the LAN printer with HP JetAdmin from one of the PCs. You did not say if you loaded JetAdmin on the Win98 PCs. The Win98 PCs will need JetAdmin or some LPR client in order to print to the LAN printer. Hope that I understood the problem correctly. hhp

I am not to clear why you are using NetBeui,when it is a non routable protocol,using TCP/IP would be more appropriate.
Set-Up your print server with Jet Admin,And setup printer sharing.
Open the Printers folder and then open the Add Printer object,click next to move pass the printer wizard
Select Local Printer and clear the check box for automatic detection
In the Select the Printer Port window,select Create A New Port.Choose Stanard TCP/IP from the drop-down list.Click next to open a new Wizard(this wizadr adds and configures TCP/IP printer ports)
Enter a printer name or an IPaddress for the printer ,name the port(the port and the printer can use the same name)and click next
Select the device type from the drop-down list or select Custom and configure the device manually
Set Printer Permissions
Printer permissions are set on the security tab of the printer's Properties dialog box
If the printer you're configuring will be shared with user's running other versions of Windows,you can install additi

Try this did you create a share to the network printer? Right click on the printer, on the add new printer window, and make sure shared is selected. You should be able to go to any of the 98 PC's on your Lan and go to network neighborhood and select the box that is the print server and then see the printer as a share.
