This section describes how to share the printer on a standard Windows network.

The computers on a network can share a printer that is directly connected to one of them. The computer that is directly connected to the printer is the printer server, and the other computers are the clients which need permission to share the printer with the printer server. The clients share the printer via the printer server.

According to the versions of Windows OS and your access rights on the network, perform the appropriate settings of the printer server and clients.

Setting the printer server
  • For Windows Me, 98, or 95, see Setting up your printer as a shared printer.
  • For Windows XP, 2000, or Windows NT 4.0, see Using an additional driver.
Setting the clients
  • For Windows Me, 98, or 95, see With Windows Me, 98, or 95.
  • For Windows XP or 2000, see With Windows XP or 2000.
  • For Windows NT 4.0, see With Windows NT 4.0.
Note:
  • When sharing the printer, be sure to set EPSON Status Monitor 3 so that the shared printer can be monitored on the printer server. See Setting up EPSON Status Monitor 3.
  • When you are Windows shared printer user in a Windows Me, 98, or 95 environment, on the server, double-click the Network icon in Control panel and make sure that the 'File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks' component is installed. Then, on the server and clients, make sure that the 'IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol' or the 'TCP/IP Protocol' is installed.
  • The printer server and clients should be set on the same network system, and they should be under the same network management beforehand.
  • The on-screen displays on the following pages may differ depending on the version of Windows OS.
