This section explains how to configure the machine as a Windows network printer. The machine is configured to enabling network clients to use it. When the network printer is connected via SmartDeviceMonitor for Client, you can set the printing notification function to notify clients of the results of their print jobs.
Under Windows XP Professional or Windows Server 2003/2003 R2, to change printer properties in the [Printer] or [Printers and Faxes] window, you need Printer Management access authentication; under Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008, Full Control access authentication. Log on to the file server as a member of the Administrators group.
Open the [Printers and Faxes] window from the [Start] menu.
The [Printers and Faxes] window appears.
Click the icon of the machine you want to use. On the [File] menu, click [Properties]. The printer properties appear.
On the [Sharing] tab, click [Share this printer].
To share the machine with users using a different version of Windows, click [Additional Drivers...].
If you have installed an alternative driver by selecting [Share As:] during the printer driver installation, this step can be ignored.
Click [OK], and then close the printer properties.
