  • You will need to install an appropriate printer driver, if one is not automatically available in the operating system. You can do this using a Remote Desktop session. The driver you want to start with is one for Windows Server 2003. If there's no Windows Server 2003 driver available, you might be able to use a driver for Windows XP. But if that's the case, you're probably dealing with a consumer device which has a ton of add-ons, and you should check to see if the manufacturer has a "driver only" installation on their web site.

    Then after the printer is installed and shared, you can install additional drivers for other operating systems, which lets users connect to the printer and install drivers automatically. Once again, you want "driver only" installers if at all possible.

  • Hi,

    If you read through the forum, quite a few people have got printers working just fine with WHS. You will ease installation angst if your printer has Server 2003 drivers, otherwise XP drivers can be used, but sometimes you have to extract the relevant parts, as it's unlikely WHS will support some of the more esoteric features that some printers include, along with the kitchen sink.

  • This might be the best thread on sharing printers in whs: http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2574077&SiteID=50

     

    I used that to share three printers... hp injet, Brother Laser, and a CD printer.  Couple of tricks here and there, but it works great once it is setup. 

     

    I'd say it is one perk of having a system on 24/7... everyone can print without me leaving on my computer... which would get shut down for one reason or another and no one could print... whs is on all the time.
