Printer setup under Windows NT 4.0, 2000 or XP:
The main laser printer can be set up as \\TH123-13\hp1_1 .
The Samsung printer can be set up as \\TH123-13\ss1_1 .
This means that the Linux machine TH123-13 in TH 123 is the server
for these printers.
Procedure for setting up to print to this printer:
- Click on Start - Settings - Printers - Add Printer
- Choose Netwowrk printer server - Next
- In the box for Printer enter \\th123-13\hp1_1
- Now you are likely to have to supply a printer driver.
It may be on your computer, or it may be on your system distribution CD ROM,
or you can go to the HP web site and download the driver.
As noted above in the table, the driver for HP LaserJet 4000 Series
PCL 6 has turned out to work for our main printer in TH 123.
This could change with future system upgrades...
The remaining Windows machines in TH 123 can print to some of the printers.
