Question about HP LaserJet 2200D Printer
I have an HP Printer which is usb connected to our office network via Windows Server 2003, so everyone sees it to print. However half our dept has moved and would like to move the printer as well. I moved the printer and hooked it up to one of the client machines and set it up for sharing. However when I tried to find it on someone else's machine, it wouldn't show up and the browser keeps defaulting to our server network. We do not have an IT inhouse and my work is primarily with Macs.
Is there anyway to easily set up the HP Laserjet 2200 so everyone else can see it on a different computer? Is assigning an ip address an option?
thank you for your info!
1. Go to the computer where the printer is attached or connected. Go to Printer and Faxes under XP, right click on your printer icon, then click on share. On the same computer, click on Start then click on run. Type in cmd then click on OK. On the black window or command prompt, type in ipconfig then press enter. Take note of the IP address.
2. Go to a computer that you want to print on the printer. Click on start then click on run. type in \\IP address of the computer where the printer is attached. For example: On the run box type in \\192.168.1.2 the click on OK. You will see there a window and you can see there the printer that is attached to that computer. Just right click on it then click on Connect.
3. Try to print.
Hope it helps!
