Printing, Client Connectivity

Windows also provides the ability to share printers to other Windows systems, which can access the shared printers via the Start menu Settings option, selecting Printers, Add Printer, and choosing to add a Network Printer, then browsing for the desired printer. Printers are shared much like folders are shared – right click, then choose Sharing, and fill in the dialog box.

Printing to a Windows network printer is as easy as printing to a local printer – after adding the network printer on your system, just select it in the print dialog when you issue the print command in your application.

You can also map a network printer to a local printer port, and print to it by printing to that mapped local port. Recall from your A+ studies that the local printer ports are typically LPT1: and LPT2:. As with mapping shared folders to local drive letters, mapping network printers to local ports is done from the Windows command line with the net use command. An example of how to do this, once you know the share name of the printer you wish to use, and the server on which it is located, is:

NET USE LPTn: \\ servername\printername

Notice that we again use a UNC path to refer to the printer.

Important File Sharing Concepts

Know the UNC, DOS and Novell Netware mapping conventions.

Check user name and password when everything seems fine, and the user cannot login. Password expiration is a standard security issue. Users are known to ignore the warning, thereby getting locked out of the network.


That wraps up our tour of the network-related features of Windows NT. Now, it’s on to the next common NOS, Novell Netware.
