Tips To Install HP Network Printer
Printer server is a device which supports communication between the system and the various printers available in the network. Each of the systems could set up any of the printer in the network as its default printer, but might always choose to send a print job to any of the other printers recognized by the printer server. The printer server can be in the form of one single server or can be combined with any other printer servers in the same network. In most of the situations, any of the printers in the network can be assigned as the printer server. The necessary software for this function is loaded onto the printer hard drive of the system that would function as the printer server. Once the hardware is installed in the system, then that software could identify each of the printers in the same network as well as all the workstations that are allowed access to server functions. If the necessary components are installed in the printer server, all the work stations could set them up into that printer server, including granting or restricting rights to any one of the printers that are recognized by the printer server.
- Share the printer
- Use network printer
- Other methods
Share the printer
The most common way to install the network printer is by sharing. This is actually known as shared printer. The main advantage of this method is that it could work with any of the USB printers. The most important thing while doing this is to always power up the host system, then only all other systems could access it. If the Operating System is Windows 7, the sharing would be easier. When a network is set up as a HomeGroup, all the printers and the folders can be easily shared.
Use network printer
If the system is connected to any of the networks, then that system can be connected to the available printers in the network. You just need to set up the system to access the printer either directly or by using the wireless network connections in the system. The printer could also be connected to a system through a USB cable but the PC doesn’t have to remain on for the networked PCs to use it.
By using printer server, you could also install HP printer. This method is less common and this is more complex than others. If the installation CD of the printer is available with you, you could do a normal installation of the printer. If this is not available, then the 'Add printer' option in the Control Panel can be made use of.
