How do I share a new printer on the network?
Posted on 2004-10-01
I've just installed a LaserJet printer on to one of my Windows 98 PCs. The PC is currently functioning on the network. I would like to share the new printer on the network. Until now, this machine has not been used to share resources. The computer name of this PC is “AARONB”
1. What do I have to do to allow other people to access the new printer? Can you please detail the steps required. This computer has never been used to share resources before.
2. What would the UNC address of this printer be when accessing it from adifferent PC on the network?
3. I would also like to share the c:\LaserJetUtils folder on the hard drive. Can you please detail the steps required to share this folder as LaserJetUtils with Read Permissions.
4. Finally, what would I have to do to map a network drive from a different machine to the share I've just created?
