  • I don't believe you'll be able to share a scanner to your home users from WHS. Check with the manufacturer. To install a printer driver, you'll need a driver for Windows Server 2003. Then:
    • Log in to WHS using Remote Desktop
    • Depending on the manufacturer's instructions, you may need to install the printer driver before connecting the printer. If so, do that now.
    • Connect the printer.

    I haven't had to do anything special to share the printer after that (WHS seems to handle that fine). If it's already shared, you're done. Otherwise:
    • Open Printers and Faxes
    • Right click the printer
    • Select Sharing
    • Select Share the printer and give it a reasonable name. You can also add drivers for other operating systems at this time.
