Discovering the URL to a printer.
Posted on 2006-06-13
I use two PCs at work, one laptop and one desktop.
Recent changes to the security at our work network has stopped access to our work printer from my laptop. It is likely that the login process on my laptop is at fault but I would rather not tinker with that if possible.
I notice that it is possible to define the printer through a URL. I also believe one can include a name and password in a URL. If I have, say, a printer called 'HP LaserJet' connected to a server 'Server' on a domain 'Domain.com' and I want to connect to it using my user name 'Name' and password 'Password', how would I construct the URL?
My first guess was:
What am I doing wrong?
