Supporting Printers

Installing Network-Attached Printers
If the printer has a network card installed and is plugged directly into the network, you need to create a port for the printer on a computer running Windows XP so that you can use the Windows interface to control and share the printer. On the Select a Printer Port page (Step 4 of the instructions on installing a local printer), select the Create A New Port option and then create the appropriate connection to the printer. In most cases, this is what is called a standard TCP/IP printer port. When you define this type of port, you are providing Windows with the printer s Internet Protocol (IP) address so that Windows can establish a connection with the network printer. Figure 9-9 illustrates this process. You will learn more about using TCP/IP and IP addresses in 10, Supporting Network Connectivity.

Create a TCP/IP printer port.
Troubleshooting Printer Driver Issues
Choosing the correct printer driver is critical for proper printer operation. If you choose an incorrect driver, one of two things is likely to happen: not all features of the printer will be available or the printer output will be incorrect. If you choose a compatible but incorrect driver, you can use whatever features of the printer that the driver you selected allows. For example, if you chose an HP LaserJet 4 driver for use with an HP LaserJet 5si printer, you would get basic printer functionality, but the enhanced font and paper-handling capabilities of the LaserJet 5si would be unavailable because the driver does not support them. If you choose an incompatible printer driver, the printer s output will be significantly affected and (in most cases) unrecognizable. A common symptom of an incompatible

driver is that the printer will produce a given character or a line of characters on a page for a significant period of time (potentially hundreds or thousands of pages). If this condition occurs, turn off the printer to clear its memory, delete the print job from the print queue if it is still there, and then install an appropriate driver.
Note If Windows XP does not support your printer and you do not have drivers from the manufacturer, try using the driver for a similar or older printer from the same manufacturer. You will often get partial functionality until you can get the appropriate drivers for the printer. You should also check the printer s user manual for compatibility with other printers that have a Windows XP driver.
Configuring Printers
After you have installed a printer, you have access to a number of options for config uring the printer. As a DST, you must understand what options are available and how to implement them because users are likely to ask you to help them set up printers and to help troubleshoot printing options when printing does not occur as they expect. You access some options for managing a printer by right-clicking the printer s icon in the Printers And Faxes window and selecting a command, as shown in Figure 9-10.
Figure 9-10 Select a command from a printer s shortcut menu.

Commands that you can perform from the printer s shortcut menu include the following:
Set As Default Printer Specifies this printer as the default printer for use in all programs. When a user prints and does not specify a printer, this is the printer that Windows uses. You can specify only one printer as the default at a given time. Printing Preferences Enables the configuration of the default page orientation, page order, pages per sheet, and so on. Pause Printing Stops print documents from being sent to the printer. When the printer is paused, there is a check mark next to this option in the action menu. To restart the printer, select the Pause Printing option again to clear the check mark. Pausing printing is useful when a number of documents are waiting to be printed and you need to make adjustments to or fix a problem with the printer configuration. Sharing Allows the management of shared printer resources.
Use Printer Offline/Online Allows the printer to be used offline if the com puter is not connected to the printer or the network, or if the user wants to hold all jobs locally for a period of time. When you bring the printer back online, all documents waiting in the local queue are printed. Properties Provides access to the printer s Properties dialog box, from which you can configure a number of options, including many of the options that you can also access from a printer s shortcut menu. The options that are available in the Properties dialog box are covered in the next few sections.
