Is there a way via scipting to force a pc to refresh their local printer
settings from the print server ? We have enabled Duplexing as the default for
printing ( conserve that paper ! ) for our HP Laserjet printers on the
Print Server, but if a user goes on their local printer settings and unchecks
duplexing, it will not re-pull that device setting from the print server
unless you delete and then re-add the printer on the local machine. Is there
a way to have the printer settings pulled from the server without have to
delete and then readd the locally installed network printer ?
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Just joined this site minutes ago so forgive me if I m asking the same print vs printer? network ready server question that has been raised a gazillion times before I ve looked at a relevant thread but it didn t quite answer my question Here s my situation for anyone who might offer advice We have two laptops with wireless cards a pc with a wireless compact USB adaptor an old but working HP Photosmart printer USB cable and a Linksys wireless-G router with Speedbooster connection to the internet for the whole shabang I want to buy a four-in-one printer looking at the cheap option of a refurbished Brother CN flatbed print server vs network ready printer? mostly to have scanner and fax capabilities and would love to be able to put it wherever and have all the various computers print from that machine without cables and the hassle of toting machines here and there That particular four-in-one is quot network ready quot - but I m realizing that I m not entirely clear what that means Is the quot network ready quot printer ready to do what I need it to do print server vs network ready printer? - can I somehow - via software get it configured on my network so that it will respond to each of the computers OR do I also need to buy a print server and if so what kind And if so wired or wireless and what does it matter And which models support the best security WPA Thanks for considering this nbsp

I have a Kodak AIO printer I purchased also a Belkin wireless print server to allow me to send documents from my laptop to print out upstairs on the Kodak However having tried to set the server Printer & Print server up with no luck I can now find no information to say that the kodak supports a server I know it will definately take a bluetooth adaptor however my laptop does not have bluetooth installed Belkin website says to press quot white quot reset test button on back of server once all wires connected and this will print out Printer & Print server IP address to allow me to set up tcp ip port There is no white button but a black button on the server but pressing this does nothing Wondering if there is any workaround for this or whether I should just return server Also if anyone has the Kodak does yours power down itself after not used for mins or so anyway of stopping this happening Thanks Gill nbsp
The current line of Kodak printers are based on an Epson design, with the print heads mounted separately inside the machine, and use a cold-ink delivery system - this means it uses an acrylic based in its inks as a drying agent. What this all means is to preserve the print heads so they don't dry out prematurely, the unit will power down automatically so that the heat the system creates does not dry it out. So the answer is no.
As for the print servers, is the Kodak associated with another computer, or is the laptop the only thing working with it? If it is with another computer, you can always use it as the print server with less fuss than adding a wireless one.
But, if the Belkin is the way to go, they do work well, having used one, though not all models want to work with AIOs, since the scanning option usually messes things up. Have you tried Belkin's 800 number? They've been pretty good in the past at working out kinks in their machines. You should have gotten a form with it in your package.
I'm trying to figure out how to scan stuff to a computer on an HP LaserJet 3330 scanner/copier/printer/fax. The thing is hooked up to a print server on a 100Mb/s network w/about 7 or 8 computers, and I'm trying to get it to scan to another computer on the network. Any ideas?
I'm not sure if you can make it scan through a genereic print server..
You most certainly need the bloated, huge and slow HP software to do it.
I replace my old SMC Router with a ZyXEL that was recommended here and have added a D-Link DP-300U Print Server. I was having difficult getting it configured to run my two printers. I am running XP Pro and went in and deleted all my printers and started fresh. I am new to this type of thing, it was a hassle but the two printers are running fine now.
My problem is that I am unable to print any PDF documents. When I try to print I receive a dialogue box - "Before you can perform print related-tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer". I have Googled without luck and am new to this type situation. I am lost at this point.
I would appreciate it if someone can provide me steps and instructions on what to download; then how and where to install. Thanks
Try uninstalling and re-installing Adobe reader. I've had several issues with it printing, and that seemed to be the only cure.

Most print servers won't function with a Windows GDI interfaced printer. This is a pretty common issue. If you want to run a printer from a print server, you normally need a printer that has PDL, PostScript support, or some other page description language. I've been down this road several times.
I'm faced with a technical problem and I hope I can get a definitive answer here
I have a D-Link three-port print server and it has 2x LPT and 1x USB for ports.
My major LPT printer just said "Sayonara" and is "in the bin" now so I'm facing the problem of connecting up its replacement which is USB-only
I see there are several powered adapters out there that would allow me to map an LPT port to USB, e.g. male connector towards the port, USB A towards the printer for a standard connection.
Will this work on a print server or are these adapters only for the PC parallel port?
Thanks for any help.
Hello, the rest of my story asking for help and advice is that I am using a Sierra wireless USB "aircard" for internet. I also have a wireless card inside my HP laptop (dv9005us). So here are my questions:
Must I use my Linksys router along with the Linksys print server or will the print server send to my wireless card or my wireless aircard?
I really don't have a beginning point to figure out all this!
Any help/info would be greatly appreciated!
Could sombody please instruct me on how to set up 4 printers on an nt network without a print server.

I have a Belkin F5D7231-4P wireless router with built in print server, I have the printer setup & it prints, but I have no printer status such as ink levels, progress, etc.
I have a desktop which is connected to the router via a cable & a laptop via wireless & they both have the same problem. It's been the same with two different printers, the first being an Epson R300 & now a Canon iP5200.
I had to setup the printer through usb first then add a printing port to the router & when it was connected directly I had printer status. Does anyone know how to get the printer status showing again?
Thanks for any help
I don't know the answer to your question; but have a question of my own. Do Epson and Canon say that the printer status is supposed to be available over a network for those two printers? I have an HP "network ready" printer and about the only status is 'connected' or 'not connected.'
Hi all Please pardon if this has printer server print w/ wireless help installing already been addressed I tried to find threads that answered my question but was not too successful I am trying to set up my husband s office so his laptop can print wirelessly to his printer via a print server Right now each time he wants to print he attaches the printer help installing printer w/ wireless print server via the usb cable This works ok but is kind of a pain since the cable has to run across the room Also each time he unplugs and plugs his laptop reinstalls the printer giving him countless copies of the same printer in the printer folder Another issue I ve never bothered to fix So I ve got the print server which also happens to be a router hooked up to the printer and the laptop with built-in wireless detected the router server and connected to it like a network without any problems I thought all I d have to do was go to add printer detect it through the server and install it But though the computer is connected wirelessely to the server it doesn t see the printer Was I totally crazy when I thought the print server would allow printing without the printer being connected to a PC Can you actually just plug a printer into a wireless server and then print from your computer Or perhaps because this is also a router it must be attached to a computer Any help with this would be greatly appreciated If you can explain how to do it I m sure I d be able to do it the laptop is a Toshiba Satellite running Windows XP the router server is a US Robotics MAXG model USR Thanks nbsp
Can anyone shed some light on why some XP Pro SP2 workstations will not use the printer settings that are configured on a win2003 print server. I have a workstation that can print to the network printer but it also wants to use a wrong and different tray that all of the other workstations that are connected to it.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/printer-shares-on-win2003-print-server-278291.html
I have a DP-301U print server connected to my network and a Samsung ML-2510. Our most recent print server (also a DP-301U) died about a week ago. I got the new one and installed it, and everything ran fine for about a day and a half.
When I went to the web management console of the DP-301U, it showed the printer status as "off line". I then had to physically power-cycle the printer/disconnect the USB cable. After that, it started working again.
After about three hours though it stopped printing again. I went to the web management console of the DP-301U, and again it showed the printer status as "off line". This time however, no amount of power-cycling would help the printer to be seen as online.
I contacted D-Link tech support, but that call was worthless. Any ideas would be welcome.
Any thoughts at all? Should I exchange it out for a new one? Am I missing some simple option? I'm guessing this may be because of the power save mode the printer can go into? If I disable power save on every PC in the office do you think it will stop (provided I can get it back up)?

Did you install the drivers for your new printer? (Obvious, sorry, but I have to ask) Best bet would be to uninstall all printers and printer software you have and start over from scratch.
The print server doesn't have to support your printer - all it does is take the data sent by your computer and forward it to the USB port. Your printer however has to support the print server. Some printers require a bidirectional connection with the computer and that cannot work over the network.
Does your print server suppirt several types of connection? It could be any combination of LPR, SMB, JetDirect and any proprietary protocols. Try something else than you are using right now.

Correction: the cups error messages I described above don't occur while trying to print from Windows 7. Instead, they occur only while the Windows 7 printer installation wizard is running, immediately after entering the printer's uri in the wizard dialog (and before selecting the printer driver).
After the wizard finishes and reports "successfully installed...", and I try to send something to the printer, I don't think anything is sent over the network at all. I did a wireshark capture, and I don't see any activity that seems to be related to the attempted printing.
Has Windows completely disabled IPP now?
I have learned by reading that a lot of print servers are picky about which printer is compatible with them. Can anyone suggest a wireless print server for the Dell Laser 1600n? Its a multifunction printer. Thanks.
Using Windows 7 Enterprise. Am frequently unable to print because 'server offline' for all of our networked printers. However, this is not really true: others in the office using the same networked printers CAN print and theirs do not say offline. Our tech guy cannot seem to get to the root of the problem. I am not working wirelessly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Forgot to mention, this problem is intermittent. Some times I can print, some times I can't. Usually, if something is really hot and some one needs it now....yep, that's when the server says offline. Truly, it is just delightful.
So I'm havng problems with printers on a Terminal Server, I tried googling for results but most only cover setting the default printer. So the default printer set-up is fine and users can access the printers set the default log off, and it remembers it. But any preferences set are forgotten.
So we use a user box setting where each user has there own box to print to. But as soon as we close preferences the printer reverts to it's default settings. We can create favourite settings and it will hold the settings but not default to it.
Is there away we can make it so that we can set each users preferences save

First, some background. I had this all set up and it was working. I installed 2 other printers and drivers and started having problems with my computer hanging up and other issues with the HP software. I decided to uninstall all of my HP software and drivers and start over.
I have 2 printers--HP Officejet Pro L7580 and an HP Deskjet 9650 that I want connected with the print server.
I downloaded the new drivers for the deskjet 9650. I have the software installed for the print server. I can open that software with my laptop and see the print server. I started installing the printer drivers using a wiresless network, but it couldn't find the printer.
I tired restarting the print server, but still it cannot find the printer. I tried putting in the IP address for the print server, but when I do it says that the HP deskjet 9650 installer has encountered and error, and it closes.
I solved my own problem! Thanks anyway

Recently I installed a new router that gives me DLNA capabilities with a HD.
To do this it has a Media Server in it.
Oddly once this is enabled in the router, the stand alone print server device I have had for a long time (that lets me print from anything on the network) that is plugged into it the router suddenly shows up in my Network of explorer and other pages showing items on the Network.
Kinda not a really big deal but just one more thing I would not like to show there, so was just wondering if there is anyway to make it back hidden again.
Note, I do not want to remove it, or effect the server device, or any of its printer capabilities, just don't want to see it.
Thanks for any help.
If you have enabled DNLA in your router, I don't think that there's a work around to disable it.
If the print server is connected to a Server (Windows 2003, 2008 Server and higher versions), there's a way to disable this by modifying the registry from the Server where the print server is configured.
Does anyone knows any really good multi-function print servers thats work on label printers? The label I have at work is called Zebra.
Have spent hours getting to a point where I can print wirelessly only by rebooting the laptop and then printing one document. Further prints fail - unless laptop rebooted. The print server is connected wirelessly to a Dlink DSL-G604T modem/router. I reckon that, since the print server WLAN light is flickering intermittently the whole time - even when the machine is switched off - that the print is not completed properly and that the print server does not receive a print end instruction. This is borne out also after rebooting and printing that only 99% of the print job is performed - it never gets to 100%. Has anyone else seen this problem - and has anyone fixed it? Otherwise the print server will be going back to the store.
I am having trouble connecting my verizon fios, dell 964 printer and my linksys wireless printer server. When I had comcast service it worked with moderate setup help from a computer technician. Now that I have changed to verizon, I can't seem to get it to work. Linksys will set me up with a third party for over $100 who specializes in multi systems... dell, verizion and linksys... and Verizon will do the same for the same amount of money. I have already paid a second compter technician to come in and set it up and he tells me that it can't be done and that verizon knows that there is a problem. I paid him over $170...Needless to say I'm looking to not spend another dime on this issue or I'll switch back to comcast.
You probably need to remove the previous wireless settings from the printer and run the set up program again.
I've just installed a wireless Belkin Print Server and having several problems. There are 3 computers, 2 on Windows 2000 and a lap top on XP. At first 2 of the printers could print fine. Then I downloaded the printdrivers for the HP 6110 on to the 3rd machine. Since then the drivers have been deleted from the other 2 computers - and the download version doesn't work. So now none of the computers can print.
I can reinstall the drivers - but what is to stop this happpening all over again?
The network is wireless (netgear) using BT Broadband. Can any one suggest what I can do to retsore the printer - incidentally after the pc drivers disappeared I checked the lap top and it was fine until it was switched on - it worked once then went teh same way as the others...Can anyone help?
I was wondering if you have managed to sort your problem out, as I am suffering from excatly the same issue. The help desk of Belkin was not use, as t hey suggested that I go and buy another printer!!
Getting ready for a massive server refresh. We will be racking and stacking a lot of 4u and 8u servers, blades and a few routers.
Just saw this video online, wanted to see what you thought - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr503Dh8XXQ
their website is http://www.serverlift.com
If you want opinions on the product, I think that it looks really nice, I have to manage servers all the time and this would be extremely nice to have, vs. using two or three men to carry and rack them. But in reality, you really have to consider if it is economically efficient. If it cost way to much, it isn't worth it, but if it is cheap and, or you have money laying around to buy this type of hardware, go for it. I hope my opinion can help you in some way.
I have an NT server that has an HP 4050 three-tray printer set up on it. (The 4050 printer is attached to a print server on the LAN) When I go to the NT server to adjust the printer properties so that the printer will print to tray tree instead of tray two and click OK, the server does not remember the settings. So when I go back into the printer properties the configuration is still set up to print to tray 2. Does anyone have any suggestions I can try out? I already tried re-installing the driver for the printer.
Have you check the defaults on the front control panel of the printer? If the printer thinks that there is not the correct paper in tray two, then it will go to the next tray that it thinks has the correct paper.
Our home has a mixed-platform network composed of three Windows 7 machines, two Vista machines, and (hopefully) one Windows XP print server. I would love to upgrade the print server to Windows 7, but it doesn't have enough RAM.

I've poked around the forums and elsewhere on the Internet, and have come across variants of this question but haven't found any clear-cut instructions that explain how to do this.

Hi, goproliance, and welcome to the forums.
When you uninstalled your Norton, did you use the removal tool or just uninstall from Control Panel?

Welcome to Eight Forums,
This could be a network card driver issue and depending on the chipsets of your computer. Some Users have encountered disconnection issue after upgrading from 8 to 8.1, possible solution is to try downloading the latest driver for your network card from the manufacturer's site. Also, please check out this Thread.
For Broadcom NIC drivers try downloading the Windows 7 driver, check out this Thread.
I'm trying to set up a physical print server to one of my printers. I've been told to change the IP address on my computer to be on the same network as the print server. I'm not sure how to do this? Can anybody give me an example or a quick walkthrough?
What's the context of this? Is this a work network we're talking about?
Hi, I have a pc running Windows XP Pro. This was formerly connected to my office server and so still has the server login settings etc. I now wish to use this computer as a stand alone home pc and so wish to remove or disable these settings as they seem to be slowing things down, especially shortcuts to excel and word workbooks. Does anyone know what I need to do?

Welcome to the windows 7 forums Gazza13
first you need to log onto the machine as an administrator and un join from the domain that you were joined to.
If you know the password of the local machine administrator account, you can log on to the local machine instead of the domain and then unjoin from the domain.
The few Windows 95 and Windows 98 computers we have left are all getting the same failure to print due to unknown network error type message. My guess is this is related to one of the April 12 Security updates installed last night on the print server which is running Windows 2003 Server. Am I the only one with this problem today?
That was it! 3 of the updates were not compatible with W9.x
I'm having sporadic issues with many users connected over the network to a print server. If the printer is their default printer the application used to print will freeze/lockup until they log out / restart their machine. The only way to fix this (from my experience) is to set their default printer to something else (like Adobe PDF) or bypass the print server completely and do it by direct TCP/IP.
Has anyone ever heard of this issue and know of a fix? Think it is a driver related problem?
right off the bat, it sounds like a driver issue or MAJOR dns issue. Are the default printer drivers PostScript by any chance? Are you offering both 64 and 32 bit drivers?http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/174895-application-locks-up-when-printing-over-network-via-print-server.html
Well I turned an old PC into an http and FTP server just for fun so I could get files anywhere in the world... So I am no server genius (very far from it) anyways I logged into it remotely today and saw that FileZila had thousands upon thousands of login attempts
My theory is he has a program running that looks for random ftp:// sites then he brute forces them trying to login as Admin, to then tunnel traffic (again a complete guess)
Anyways am I right at all or completely crazy, and how could I stop him
Btw the IP address leads to somewhere in Romania...

Are you talking about a fixed Desktop unit or do you also use a laptop / notepad, and is this the only computer in the house / unit ?
I am on my laptop, so it is a bit hard to see those numbers in any sequence, and I will just ask you.
Have you recently changed your ISP or used a USB Dongle to browse from ?
Next have you or any computers in the house used a "Free ISP" like shops / Shopping centers (McDonalds for instance) Skype or airports ?
To follow up are you near enough to be affected by a free ISP outlet as described above (I noticed mine alter now that I also use a USB) ?

Hi all. We have a number of NT 4 servers, one of which is PRINTSVR, a print server for our NT Workstation network. We have approximately 58 printers setup on this server and for the most part they work great. Something weird is happening, though, on an irregular basis.
On occasion the server will not print Excel spreadsheets and the only way to get it to print them is to reboot. It's not a specific printer problem because once this starts it affects all the printers. The print jobs run through their respective queues indicating that they're spooling, printing, and then they disappear and nothing comes out of the printer(s).
One of our employees has mentioned that she has noticed that the problem occurs after she has attempted to cancel a job. The next time she attempts to print from Excel nothing happens.
Any ideas? Anything would help.

I managed to find a solution this morning, for anyone that's interested, the whole article is here: Multiple Network Connections at the Same Time on Windows | Ivan Zlatev
But the short answer is, under the advanced properties of TCP/IP v4, uncheck automatic metric, set your internet to a value of 1, and the LAN to a value of 9999.
My windows 8.1 laptop has been infected with what I assume is some rather sneaky malware.
It all started when my girlfriend was surfing and Avast picked up an infection and promptly quarantined it. After that most of our browsing has been redirected and were locked into a proxie server.
I've used Malwarebites, AdwCleaner and Hitman Pro to try to remove the infection but it continues instantly.
I'm unable to use system restore and the option to turn the proxie off is unavailable.
Hope you guys can help.

We have about 8 computers on a LAN that conncet to a local netowrk printer. We can all each individually carry that printer to our terminal server (using remote desktop), so we can each print from the server to our local machine.
We purchased two new computers which came installed with Vista, insuring all local resources are enabled within Remote Desktop, the printer does not show on the Windows 2003 Terminal Server as it does on all the XP machines.
Printing from the Vista machines to the printer works fine, although we do have some issues locally printing different types of PDF's (sometimes changing "Document Type" to "Document" in our print driver prints the PDF, most times it does not).
Our local network pritner is a Konica-Minolta C352.
I'm very knew to the networking scene in my job and I'd like to know if there is a way to test the speed that a file could be transfered from server to server. For example, the file is located on the Brisbane server (\\brisbane) and I would like to transfer it to the Mackay server (\\mackay) located 1000+km away. This file is approx 630MB and I don't want to slow the network traffic down too much so I need to know how long it will take to transfer.

I have three printers connected to this Linksys EPSX3 print server and almost 25 workstations (WinXp pro installed) using this three printers and can print fine with all the systems. Recently have formatted and installed one workstation with WinXp Pro and connected to the network domain with DHCP enable and firewall disabled on local machine. After installing the print server driver and going to the configure the print server dialog box, Im able to browse and view the print server name and ip but when I press ok it gives a error message " addport failiure" and the whole network get jammed. Nobody can print anything from any other systems and just has to reset the print server again to make it work.Can anybody explain whats goin on..

I have disabled it in control panel firewall but some how it was loading automatically at startup and running. So went to services and set to start service manually. The print server port was added without a prob..

I have some printers in different departments that a dozen or so people use and everyday these particular printers go offline-the message i get is quot Printer not found on server unable to connect quot Our IT guy is on vacation and he s not responding to my emails so I m taking the task of quot fixing quot this These are Dell printers s running on Dell Optiplex XP Pro SP I installed these printers on our server using the quot remote quot feature on the installation disk I ve inputted the IP address and clicked quot install quot It ll work for a bit then go offline then I would have to reinstall the driver on the server again and then the connection from the local machines to the server would be fixed Why are the local machines losing their connections to the server and how can I fix this issue without having to reinstall the drivers everytime Thank you in advance for your assitance -afs - nbsp
Hi, you said, "These are Dell printers 1815's running on Dell Optiplex 320, XP Pro SP 2." If that is the case, you need to do a local install and share the printers.
Basically, if the printer is directly connected to a PC with a USB or LPT cable, then I would be surprised that a remote install with IP address even works.
If the printer is connected directly to the network with a network cable only, then you may have bad network cables or may need to change the port on the switch/hub.
With the information I have, this would be the first things I would check.
We changed from cable to dsl wireless the other day and I can't get my printer to work. We have it on a print server. (dlink). I probably have to change some numbers or something but I'm not sure what or where. Can anyone help me? The printer is an HP photosmart all in one C4100 series. The router is a dlink.
Okay, I'm looking to use one printer for up to 4 computers in my house on my wireless network. What is the cheapest solution here? Im thinking I have to buy one of those "Print Servers" from newegg.com but I'm really clueless on the subject. Would like to do this as cheap as possible.. K, thanks
The simplest & cheapest way would be sharing the printer.

I'm setting up a print server and i need to wipe the two drives it has but they both have windows NT server on them pass protected and the bios doesn't allow for boot from CD and ways around this with out opening up my compy to reformat them?
I have a wireless network at home right now and i'm sharing my printer through my desktop. What I want to do is make the printer a network printer without having to share it through the desktop so that i don't need to always have it on when i want to print from my laptop. I know print servers are more expensive than this, but i don't really know too much about this stuff and maybe someone can help me out. I know it says its a print server, but i just wanted to make sure and see if anyone has used something like this to make a printer a network printer on a wireless network. Thanks in advance.
I have istalled a IOgear usb print server. Everything is working fine apart from the fact that the actual printing is very very slow. I have 2 xp machines connected to it.
Any suggestions very much appreciated
your connection to the printer is the issue. if you have a WIRELESS connection,
then you will be limited in two ways: the wireless limit + any encryption on the connection.
if at all possible, wire the printer to any system and then just print-share it with
How can I get around a print server?
I have a cheap usb Lexmark X1150 printer. In past I installed this printer to my server pc. Sharing the printer with the network.
I would like to share the printer with the network without using the server pc or a print server.
What I would like to do is use a USB to ethernet adapter, attaching my printer to my Dlink DI-624 router.
I don't have a the adapter yet...
Will this work?
Any help or other ideas would be great.
Highly unlikely unless this is some peripheral from Lexmark. You'll either have to have something connected to the printer (a computer with an OS) or a print server. Something has to actually "share" the printer out and know how to handle your print jobs.
My print server will not connect to my computer through my new wireless router.
When I type in the IP address in the browser nothing comes up. How can I make it connect?
I have PCs A Compaq SR HM Running Vista Home Basic SP a Dell Dimension B XP Home SP a Dell Dimension Running XP Home SP an HP Pavillion Celeron running XP home SP I want to set up the HP Pavilion to act soley as a Using PC Server Print as old printer server for two printers and all of the computers What I am trying to accomplish is not having to have all the computers turned on so that One can use either printer Laser Inkjet the Pavilion will not need a monitor keyboard or mouse once set up unless trouble shooting or updates are needed No Problem turn on File and Printer Sharing for all Haven t tried to install SP on the Pavilion don t know if it will even work on this PC My Question is after having all the necessary updates to XP on the pavilion how do I disable internet access only on this computer while still keeping access to rest of my home network At the moment I am using a Linksys RTP voip router as my router with out the telephone service enabled as my network router Or is this possible I am not using the router firewall I am instead using the Windows Firewall on all computers Also the Pavilion is not presently connected though I have had it on my home network with both of the Dells before Print and file sharing with this computer works Any Suggestions are appreciated and TIA for any help nbsp
Just don't configure a default gateway on the HP.
dear friends, pls tell me what is a print server, and also tell me the installation and sharing procedure of a plotter.
There are Hardware Print Servers that basicaly control the flow of data from pc's to printers. Then there are Software Servers that will control the flow, drivers and anything else you configure them to do from pc to printer...
A Plotter is basically a printer, set it up as you will a printer ( via the software )...
And...for some reason I think this is a test question...
Can some please walk me through in how to set up a print server? Networking isn't my strength so I would appreciate it if you could explain it in easy terms. Thanks for all of your help.
P.S. I have searched the posts already but they are too difficult to understand.
I recent received a netbook. I installed a Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router (very nice btw). I am running Vista on my PC and XP on my netbook. My Printer is an old LaserJet 6p.
Okay, so I have the router set up just fine, but here is the rub. I set-up a linksys router for my sister-in-law and was able to send docs to the printer without any trouble. My netgear is not as forthcoming with this ability... I assumed all routers assisted with the capacity unequivically...
Am I missing something.
I set my printer up on my PC to be shared. But my netbook can't seem to find it...
What do I need to do?
Any and all help, tips, and links would be appreciated!
I've browsed (googled) but I am not sure if I need to create a print server on my PC or if I am missing something very obvious...
if you wire it like this
then systems attached to router#2 can reach anything on router#1
BUT not the converse.
remove the cable from the WAN side of router#2 and move it to the LAN side.
login to router #2 and disable the DHCP server.
Router#1 will then control all IP address assignments and all systems will have the same
first three portions of the IP address, eg 192.168.0.x
I have an Elite Silicon 4-port USB server that I used to have connected to my router when using W7. Since upgrading to W10 (x64 Pro) I haven't needed to use it but SWMBO is whining about having to turn my PC on to use the Epson sat in my office so I thought I'd connect it up again.
Firstly, W10 doesn't see the device at all - no beeps when I connect it and can't see it when doing a scan for devices - and secondly the drivers won't install from the CD. They are the latest drivers but several years old so I guess maybe not compatable with W10?
If anyone has a suggestion to get this deice working I'd be happy to hear about it. Alternatively, does anyone have a print server running under W10 that they can recommend?
I have printer servers pointing to several printers, and users of course will go to the print server. We will be upgrading the network and there will be IP changes for everyone, including the printers and print server.
My question is, after the printers and print server IP addresses changed, does the user end PC need to do anything?
I am trying to connect a wireless print server to an Actiontec M1000 Single Port Wireless DSL Modem. Currently The modem is hooked directly to a desktop computer. My equipmemt is
Desktop Computer that has no wireless card
2 laptops that can connect through wireless
Actiontec M1000 Single Port Wireless DSL Modem
Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer
My question is how can I hook the print server up so I can print from all three computers? Do I need to throw a router or switch into the mix? Can someone tell me the best way to hook everything up?
The way the wireless print server works is it should authenticate on your existing wireless network. These can be a pain to setup as you have to get that working and then install the printer as a network printer through the print server. These almost always come with a cd that you run to help you configure them.
I have to configure one of my old print server that works with only with ARP to setup the IP address.
My PC (and the network) IP address range is 188.8.131.52 with subnet 255.255.255.0
My Print server MAC address is : 00-05-5d-5a-04-54
I want to assign the printer server IP address 184.108.40.206 and I tried the following DOS command from my XP
ARP -s 220.127.116.11 00-05-5d-5a-04-54
The command works successful, but I can not ping from my PC to Print Server.
I assume that I need to assign teh subnet also? If it is then how can I assign a subnet using ARP command?
I use a D-Link 704P router. It came with software and instructions for Win 9X ME 2K, nothing for XP and same on website. Since putting in XP Pro don't know how to install the printer using the router port. I got it useable for the network by hooking it to one of the computers with a USB cable, all can print now but the "server" it is on has to be running, that is the PC that was USB'ed to it. All use the router printer port now, don't need the USB.
Anyone know how to point XP towards the print server port the right way?
Hello all i am after a print server not worryed if it is wireless or wierd that is not a problem! What i am wanting is that i can print straight to the server using the printer drivers on the computer and no aditional software if there is any out there. E,g like printing through the network to anouther computer and letting that do the printing thanks for any advice Steve
P.s it has to be usb as i already have a intel Parrale one chears agane

ONE OF MY PRINTERS IS NOT WORKING BECAUSE OF SOME PROBLEM WITH ZOT 525 PRINT SERVER. IF ANYONE HAS COME ACROSS AN ISSUE LIKE THIS, AND HAS BEEN ABLE TO RESOLVE IT, KINDLY SHARE WITH ME. I COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING INFORMATORY ON THE NET.
Please do not use all caps when posting this is considered the same as yelling and is also considered by some to be rude. What printer are you using? What are your system specs? Things such as Mobo, Processor, Ram, Video, OS, the usual. If you add your system specs to your Signature and you have other questions people can look at your system and help much easier.
Will USB print servers return ink levels to the computer either through the normal printer monitor or through the IP address?
Will this happen in a networked printer like an Epson Workforce 40?
Hello, I am in the IT dept in my company, and I am having trouble figuring out how to fix a printer issue. One of our locations recently had their Ricoh printer swapped out for a newer Ricoh, and now nobody can print to it. If they try to print from an application, it will crash the application, and a test print will fail as well. I am however able to print a test page from the server that the printer is shared from.
I have tried the following so far:
- Removing the printer from a client PC and adding it again
- Manually removing the print driver and reinstalling it
- Reinstalling the drivers on the server using an updated Universal Print driver from Ricoh's website
Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone has.
I get an error saying OS not supported. Also, I am running XP on my other partition, so I don't think exporting drivers will fly.
Is this Print server Vista certified?
I know that there were firmware updates released to make some models work with Vista, Check with linksys to see if this applies to you model
I wanted to remove my printers from a dedicated PC and bought a print server The D-Link Server dummies Print for DP- U I thought that I understood the setup but now I m not sure In theory is it so that I map to IP adress to one below or above the PCs on my router and then once I have that I have three IP ports P P and U This thing has LPT parallel ports and one USB port My router is working around Print Server for dummies addresses etc The server is delivered as and one is to remap this to quot be the same quot as the network So I installed the SW opened the GUI and mapped the thing to Then I went through an quot add printer quot routing using steps to create a new TCP IP port and then I typed in as instructed in the setup guide then quot custom quot LPR etc and the driver and then finish This worked I did the same for a USB printer on the server Now when I want to get to these printers from a different PC I ran into trouble Do I understand this correctly that I created quot PORTS quot to map to and tell MS to quot search quot for printers on PS-AE CF PS-AE CF -P P U However when I do that thething lights up like a christmas tree and hangs I can quot see quot the print server in network neighborhood but when I click on it MS says it is not online Maybe I really should retire Any patient help appreciated expat nbsp
Did you simply try manually specifying the type of printer rather than searching?
Step 2 implicitly says de-select automatically detect plug-n-play printer.
I believe you have to manually specify your printer type, and by trying to use plug-n-play to detect the printer you're sending LPQ enquiry (which was originally meant for the good old fashioned parallel port interface)
I have two old HP parallel port only printers that are just wonderful They are the absolute cheapest to operate at less six-tents of a penny a page and more dependability could never be expected from any device I ve been looking at print servers the internal one made especially for my printers and other external ones made to work with any parallel port printer My last experience with generic those not made for a specific Server Info Print Please printer print servers was that they would run out of memory and Print Server Info Please quit a print job at the point the buffer was full For that reason I sort of considered them second rate parts and never used Print Server Info Please them Print Server Info Please again That was about years ago Occasionally I will send - to -page print jobs to the printer and it prints it just fine start to finish without a hitch If the print servers still suffer from this buffer problem I don t want to waste my time finding out the hard way Question Do today s generic print servers from reputable companies like Linksys Netgear etc still suffer from these buffer problems or have they solved that nbsp
Hmmm . . .
I am trying to install a WPS54GU2 print server but no luck, the initial set up does not even find the print server. I have tried both parallel and usb. The green lite for both parallel and usb are on, so the print server is finding the printer (hp 5550). I have double checked the cable set up. I don't know what else to do. The lite for the lan is showing green also. Running winxp. Please help don't know what else to do.
Have you tried changing the intial setup to include all print servers not just new unconfigured print servers?
Also here is a link to the manual - ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pdf/wps54gu2_ug.pdf
In there in Appendix A it tells you how to force it back to factory defaults.
Also another questions are you using a wireless router or a WAP to connect to this Wireless print server? Is this linksys as well or another brand are you using encryption of any kind?
I have 2 USB printers. Can I hook a USB hub to the one USB input to enable more printers? Or should I look for a different printer server?
I doubt that a USB print server will deal with a hub, they're pretty simple devices. Of course, you could try it just for kicks, but I'm betting it will choke on it. I think you need one with two USB connections, or just a second print server. Of course, you could also just connect the printer to a computer and share it.
I am setting up a small network and have an opportunity to buy a new Xircom Pocket Ethernet Print Server IIps for a really cheap price.
What is involved in setting up a print server? Do they need drivers as I cannot find any XP drivers for this model??
Thanks for any thoughts
I think you'll have to install LPR print support on your O/S for that device to work, it's a pretty old product. If it's real cheap, it may be worth a look, but currently supported print servers aren't that expensive...
i have recently installed a wireless network in my house and have added a wireless printer server as an acompaniment.
Basically i followed the install inctructions to the book and it works!! yay!
but when loading a document, or clicking file->print (for example) this takes a long time to load and the actual printing takes quite a while to initialise.
does anybody know anyway to fix this and speed things up?
i am using a dlink 108.2g mimo print server, id numbers and other stuff to follow.
