Make sure your "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" is enabled under your Local Area Network Connection settings. Then do the following:

1) Go to Printer and Faxes setup in Control Panel.

2) Right click on the printer you want to share, then click Sharing.

3. Click on Sharing tab and enable Share this printer to share. Click Apply.


That's it!

Have you considered installing the scan tools on the other computers? Print sharing is a function of windows; assuming that the printer is not a true network printer. Windows does not have the ability to share scanners. But this is where the software can scan the network and find a HP scanner. Also some scanners can perform a "scan-to" function; but I believe the software need to be installed on the destination computers for this to work as well.

My scanner won't work. It keeps saying something


You most likely have ONLY installed the Printer side of the software... you ALSO need to install the "Scanner" part too. Go to the web site and get the FULL version for your software.

Can CanoScan be installed on two computers?


Most scanners including all-in-one printers can be shared acrossed a network. Hook up the scanner to one computer. At that computer, go into the control panel and to scanners (XP that would be printers and other hardware and then scanners). Right click on the CanoScan and click sharing. You can assign a name to the device. Go to other networked computer and add the device. You should be given an option to locate device on a network. Install the same driver and software you want to use with scanner.

Note: I'm not a Mac user, I've given instructions based on Windows XP/Vista. But, process should be similar.

I do not believe you can share the scanner across the LAN as the software does not support this.
Windows only supports the sharing of certain hardware such as printers but not scanners, even though that is attached to the printer but uses different drivers and software to work.

Go to the compuetr that the device is directly hooked up to.  Go to your mycomputer and right click on the scanner, and click on the sharing link.

You might also access it from the printers control panel.

Connecting printer to SBS (Small Business Server)


You can physically connect the printers to the server and share it from there or leave the printers connected to your computer and have the server connect to them via a Local Port which routes to your computer!! To do the Create the local ports you'll need to 1.) share the printers on your pc 2.) Go to the server and go to printers in control panel 3.)Click on Add a new printer then next 4.)Select Local Printer connected to this computer; De-select Automatically Detect Printer 5.)Select Create new port and select Local Port 6.)In the enter a port name, enter the full network path to the printer i.e. \\your-pc-name\printer-share-name click ok 7.) Select the drivers for that specific printer(if its not there click on have disk then browse to the drivers to install them) 8.) Continue through the installation until finish) 9.) Repeat steps for additional printers Keep in mind that your computer still needs to be on! You can check to see if your printer support a network card to make them fully network printer you can add them to the server this way and only the server would need to be on! Or you can also get a print server(Device that makes regular printers into network printers). Now when it comes to the scanning, i don't know of any way to share a scanner with just windows alone, but there are third party software that allows you to do that Check out http://www.remote-scan.com/ There are also printers that sorta do the scanners sharing by automatically scanning and putting files in a designated area on the network! Hope this was helpful regards, babb
