Setting Up Print Server
With a print server, you can reduce the load on the computer that you print from. The print server also makes it
possible to install the drivers on each computer over the network, which saves you the trouble of installing the drivers
on each computer by using the provided CD-ROM/DVD-ROM. To set up a computer on the network as a print server,
configure the settings for sharing the printer.
To perform the following procedure, log in to your computer with an administrator account.
You may be unable to install drivers over the network depending on the operating system and the bit
architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) of the print server and client computers.
When implementing a print server in a domain environment, consult your Network Administrator.
Open the printer folder.
Right-click the printer driver icon for this machine and click [Printer properties] or
Click the [Sharing] tab, select [Share this printer], and enter the share name of the
Click the [Change Sharing Options] button if displayed.
Install additional drivers as necessary.
This operation is required if you want to install the drivers in other computers running a different bit
architecture via the print server.
Click [Additional Drivers].
Select the check box for the bit architecture that other computers are running, and click [OK].
