1 Using Your Printer on a Network
To share your printer on a network, you must connect the printer to your network using one of the following methods. Before you
set up your printer, check that your computer is fully set up, operational, and meets the minimum system requirements listed in
“System Requirements” in your HP PhotoSmart P1100 Printer User’s Guide.
Your HP PhotoSmart P1100 printer can be shared over a network in three different ways:
• Locally Shared: Share your printer from a network-connected computer by enabling printer sharing on your computer and
connecting your printer to the parallel port of the host computer. See “Locally Shared Printer Connection” on page 2 for details.
• Peer-to-Peer: Connect your printer to a network via the parallel port of an HP JetDirect External Print Server. See “Peer-to-Peer
Connection” on page 8 and consult your print server documentation for help setting up the print server.

• Client Server Network Connection: Connect your printer to a network via the parallel port of an HP JetDirect External Print
Server and share the printer from a Windows NT 4.0 or NetWare 3.12, 4.11, or 5.0 server on your network. Clients print through a
Windows NT or NetWare server. See “Client Server Network Connection” on page 10 for details.
Note: Clients on a network do not have access to the CompactFlash or SmartMedia card slots. Clients only have the capability to print.
Host PCs in a locally shared configuration will have access to the card slots, only if software is loaded from setup.exe.
2 Locally Shared Printer Connection
In the locally shared configuration, the printer is connected directly to the parallel port of a selected computer that functions as a
host to other computers on the network. To locally share your printer, the printer software must be installed on the host computer
and on each client computer.
