Installing the Printer Software for Network

Clients

Before network clients can print to the printer, the printer’s software must be installed on their workstations. The installation procedures are similar to the installation procedures for system administrators. Install the software by running Setup.exe from the root directory of the

CD-ROM or from a disk image copied with Disk Copy.

To install network client software, choose Typical Installation.

Software for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 includes the PCL and

PostScript drivers, HP FontSmart, and HP Toolbox.

Software for Windows NT includes the PCL and PostScript drivers,

HP FontSmart, and HP Toolbox.

Do not install the PCL or PostScript drivers on workstations that connect to Windows NT servers when you install other network client software.

Clear the PCL and PostScript Driver check boxes in the Components list during the Custom Install. The drivers will be installed from the server when you connect to a network printer (later in this section).

To install the network client software onto a Windows NT workstation, you must have administrator privileges on that workstation.

For a minimal installation on a Windows 3.1 or 95 workstation, use the minimal installation option in the installer.

On a peer-to-peer network, users who want access to the network printer should install the HP JetAdmin software on their workstations. For more information, see the chapters on peer-to-peer networks in the HP

JetDirect Print Server Software Installation Guide.
