To set up a network printer, it is
important to initially take note of its manufacturer, model, and IP
address. In some instances, network administrators assign a different
IP address to the network printer instead of using the default
manufacturer settings. Normally, these bits of information can be found
on a sticker or label on the printer hardware itself. It is assumed
that the necessary device drivers are present either on a disc or stored
locally on the hard drive.
To begin the setup process for an SCO
UNIX-based system, jump to Step 12. For computer systems using the Mac
OS X Operating System platform, continue to Step 17. Machines running
on Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Vista environments can begin setting
up the network printer from the next step.
Click on the “Start” button and select the
“Printer and Faxes” options if you are using Windows XP. Under Windows
Vista, click the Windows icon, choose the “Control Panel” option,
select the “Hardware and Sound” category and then click on the Printer
Double click on the “Add a Printer” option
to launch the Add Printer Wizard and then click on the “Next” button.
In the succeeding window, make sure you
select the “Local Printer” option and do not select the “Automatically
detect…” feature. Click on the “Next” button.
Choose the “Create a new port” category
under the Type field and use the “Standard TCP/IP Port” option. Click
the “Next” button twice for Windows XP machines.
In the Printer Name or IP Address box,
type in the IP address assigned to the printer hardware by the
manufacturer or the name designated by the network administrator
whichever is applicable. Click on the “Next” button and then the
“Finish” button to complete the process.
In the Select the Printer Port window,
choose the “Use the following port” option and make sure that the
Standard TCP/IP Port is selected from the list. Click on the “Next”
Choose the appropriate name of the
manufacturer and the model of the printer. If the device driver is
present, simply click on the “Have Disk” button and then click on the
For the Name box, type in any name you
prefer which will identify the printer hardware to the network
environment. Also, specify if this will be used as the default printer
of the network. Click on the “Next” button.
In the next screen, make sure that the “Do
not share printer” option is chosen. Click on the “Next” button twice
and click the “Finish” button to finalize the setup process. The
network printer should now be accessible to all clients.
For SCO UNIX machines, the user must log
in as root and execute the sysadmsh command.
Select “Printers”, followed by
“Configure”, and then the “Add” from the “sysadmsh” option.
Make sure that the Connection Property
should have the direct value. The Device Property must be equal to
Hardwired. The /dev/null should be the value assigned to the Device
name for a TCP/IP network.
