Connecting Network Clients to the Printer

After installing the software on a workstation, you must connect workstation to the printer.

Workstations in Windows 95 can be connected to the print server or directly to the printer.

Workstations in Windows NT and Windows 3.1 can be connected to the print server.

To connect workstations to the print server

Connect the printer drivers to the printer on the proper port.

In Windows 3.1, double-click Printers in the Control Panel, then select

Connect to connect the printer driver to the network. If the network port is not visible in the Ports list, then click Network and complete the

Connect to Network dialog box.

In Windows 95, select the printer in the Printers folder. Then from the

File menu, select Properties. Select the correct port on the Details tab.

If the port is not present, click Add Port and browse for the correct path to the printer.

When you connect to a network printer from a Windows NT workstation, the printer driver will be automatically installed if you use a Windows NT server. If the operating system is unable to install the driver from the server, you can install the driver from the CD-ROM. If you are prompted for the driver, browse for HPPRINT.INF in the

WINNT\<language>\CD1 subdirectory, where <language> is the language you are using.

To connect to a network printer from a Windows NT workstation, you must have administrator privileges on that workstation.
