Printing can be done directly to most network printers, without the need for a print server

  1. install relevant printer driver on PC
    • drivers from the manufacturer's CD or web-site often provide better functionality than inbuilt Windows drivers
  2. go to Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Device & Printers -> Add a Device
  3. click -> the Printer that I want is not Listed
  4. select Add a Printer using TCP/IP address or hostname
  5. enter IP address of the printer
  6. enter (arbitrary) port name
  7. on next screen select relevant printer driver
  8. after installation completes, right click on printer icon and select "Printing Preferences" -> "Advanced"
    • set paper to A4 or A3, as appropriate
