Network printing refers to the network set-up where the multiple client systems can access the same printer and use its services whenever required. This arrangement is especially convenient in places like the offices and academic institutions. Purchasing separate printers for all the systems is not pragmatic or feasible. You can use a print server to connect the multiple clients to the printer. For any help with setting up such a print network, contact the Microsoft support services.
What is a print server?
The print server device acts as a server between the printer and the multiple client systems that are trying to access the printer. It receives the print commands from various systems and uses a queuing procedure to send the same to the printer. It processes this queue by allocating the work, changing the queue order or cancelling the waiting command and so on. This way, there is no need to connect every system physically to the printer. A print server is very easy to install and use. Many printers nowadays come with the inbuilt print server, making it very easy to connect to the network.
How to set up a network printer or print server in Your Windows Vista OS
You have to establish a network printer connection to the print server for sending the print messages. Follow these instructions to set up the connection.
You have now created a printing network, which you can access from your operating system or using any of the document printing applications like the MS word or the Adobe Reader. For any driver installation errors, get help from the Microsoft support website or visit the official website of the printer manufacturer.
