Does not seem to print xps files.


For sure, you're trying to print a document or text from a client PC in which the print network was not shared. If this was the case you can try these simple 1-2-3 steps:

1. In the server make sure that the printer is shared through network thru the Printer and Fax Config in the Start Menu
> Select Printer
> Properties
> Sharing
> Share this printer (Printer name ex.: Brother...)
> OK

2. In the client PC make sure that the printer is joined through the network thru the Printer and Fax Config in the Start Menu
> Add A Printer
> A Network Printer
> Connect to the Printer (ex.: \\server\Brother...) Automatic Detection...
> Next.....
> OK

3. Ready to print any files....

How to connect a wireless printer.


First things first. Make sure that you have the same username and password set up on the machines you want to use as your print server and the machine(s) you are going to print from, the or the "Client".. This is required so that you can communicate with the other machine(s), "Clients".. Once you have the machines’ usernames and passwords set, you can turn to the machine with the printer attached to it. (which we will call the print server). From this machine (The one we have called the print server), we will need to set up the default printer on it. So install the software & drivers for the printer. Test that you can do a "Test Print" . Then we will need to go to Printers and Faxes in the control panel. You need to right click on the printer that you want to share, and choose properties. When you get to the properties page for the printer, click on the tab that says "Sharing". That will enable the client PC to "See" & be able type in the printer’s name. Usually the software will put the "Printers" name in. It will be grayed out until you click the radio button to share it.
Now, when you are ready, go to the "Client" computer you want to print from, wirelessly. When you set up your printer, go to install the printer, and you install a "Networked Printer" you then you "Tell" the installer where the "Printer" "is on the network". So when asked for location you then you can "Browse" for the printer, or type and your IP address OR host name,and Printer name too.. Mine is 192.168.1.64 OR heaven, so I typed 92.168.1.64, OR the Name of the machine. So say: As in my case, 92.168.1.64BrotherD or heavenBrotherD. Anyway, this will then go away, and connect to the "Printer" and do some houskeeping & finish, from then on, you will be able to print. try a test print the same as you did on the "Print Server". If you wish to print from say, Word, do it, by simply choosing the correct printer from the print menu that comes up whaen you try to print. Ensure you right click on the Printer Icon on Client and choose "Default Printer" too. You can also right click on documents and images files, and select "Print".
Also ensure that the print server is set to on, in Services too, on BOTH machines.

Print jobs get stuck in the queue


OK - all the answer posts on HP sites, Experts Exchange and MS have been a joke to this problem so far. HP 10xx series LaserJet printers do not work (well) in a shared environment. I have found two solutions to this problem. If you really don't understand shares/printing/services/firewall exceptions - don't bother trying this - buy a networked printer when the toner runs out of the HP10xx.
If you want to spend a few hours or about $100 for a print server/NAS device, read on... I HAVE an HP1022 shared on a Windows XP Pro SP3 machine serving as a print server to a Vista laptop, a Windows 7 desktop and a Mac-Mini running OS X 10.6.x. ALL are working.
1. Buy a network print server device (or a NAS device with an included print server - I picked up a Buffalo LS-CHL 1TB and it worked out of the box. I AM NOT ENDORSING BUFFALO NAS servers, they get horrible reviews and you may end up having the same problem down the road due to the NAS device) In this case, your print clients (Win7, Vista, XP, MacOS X) can use a traditional SMB Windows client to print or the BETTER solution is to use the print services for Unix client that comes with Windows but is not installed by default. Both clients work, you may have fewer problems down the road using the Unix (LPR) client. See http://www.alexfalkenberg.com/2009/10/06/linkstation-windows-printing-problem-solved/ This is an excellent article on the Buffalo - BUT THE SOLUTION works in a native windows environment as well.
2. Build on the idea from number 1 above and INSTALL the LPDSVC (friendly name TCP/IP print services) on the machine with the printer LOCALLY attached through USB. You will also have to open up some firewall ports on the machine you are using as a print server if you have one running... I used a program exception (C:\WINDOWS\system32\tcpsvcs.exe) but you could lock this down to 1 TCP port if you wish - I think TCP 515 but you'd better check on this one...) Share the printer as normal. Next install the "Print Services for Unix" CLIENT on the machines you want to connect to the printer remotely from. When you connect to the printer share from the clients, select a LOCAL port, create a NEW PORT, select LPR, use the hostname or the IP of your machine acting as a print server and the NAME OF THE SHARE as the queue. (I don't like to have spaces in my share names, so I used HPLaserJet when I set up the share and description.) You will HAVE TO INSTALL THE RIGHT Printer driver locally on each client. This might be easiest just plugging in the printer with a USB cable since the HP printer driver is an installer as well and wants it to be connected locally unless you can extract the driver...)
Sorry I can't give more details than this. If you don't get the jist of what I am saying above. Don't try it. Give up and call the plumber.

Can't print from shared printer


Did you connect the printer directly to the laptop to install the drivers? If so, you need to change the port to the network location to //hostcomputer/printer. You should also have the same user name and password set on both machines and have the user rights assigned to the printer sharing.

Dymo Twin Turbo install on network


You need to download the Dymo software 7.8 from Dymo. Start with the system that has the printer plugged into it. Install the software and make sure it works (prints labels) Now go to Printers and Faxes and find your printer. Right click and choose properties. Then the Sharing tab. Choose a share name that is simple. The printer will now be know to other installs as \\computername\sharename

Go to the next computer and install the software - CHOOSE NETWORK when you get the part about connection. Either enter your host computer info from above or BROWSE to it via Windows Networking. All should be fine now.

Use two computers with one printer


Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000

Sharing with Samba/Cups


To my best knowledge, you cannot. The drivers and scanning software on your unit are not designed to support network protocols. Your unit does not come with an Ethernet adapter and it is not available as an option. When Samsung fits an equipment with a network card (such as the SCX-4521FN) the drivers and software are enabled for network use. By the way, your toner will only last for 3,000 pages. Are you sure it's a good idea to share such such a small unit over a 10 PC network?
