I don't know exactly what you have done so far... But, if you have a network printer installed on your server, an easy way to connect this is by going:

Start | Run

Type in your server name e.g. type in:

\\servername

Then, this will open a window with shared files on your server, and is where you will find your network printers. On the printer you would like to use, right-click on it and select 'Connect...'

You should be able to see your printer under: File | Plot..., under the 'Plot Device Tab', and in the Plotter Configuration Name in the drop down box you should be able to see the list of printers. If you connected to the printer as I described above, it should be named something like: \\servername\printername

I hope this is of some help...?

Thanks Ke11ie

I can connect to the network printer in question but it does not show up in AutoCAD
Unfortunately I don’t know AutoCAD just helping a friend
I will look some more in AutoCAD settings
