If the printer is installed on another PC, you need to share it. Go to Start > Printers and Faxes. Right-click the printer,click the Sharing tab and share it. Set permissions so people have access to it. If the PCs don't all run the same operating system, then you may need to install Additional Drivers from the same tab. Then go to the client PC, and start the Add Printer wizard. Install a network printer. Whenasked to select the printer, browse to the location of the server.

In your case it looks as if the printer may be installed via a printserver (a network box that connects parallel or usb printers to the network). In that case, use the Add Printer wizard to install a *local* printer. When asked to select a port, create a new TCP/IP port with the IP address of the printserver (192.168.0.69). Then, when the list of printers comes up, browse to the location of the .inf file, i.e. the CD or other location of the driver files.

That was the first driver i tried.Unfortunately it installs with wizard and creates a script file.I've tried almost 4 different drivers package but nothing worked.If i am trying any wrong .inf , epson starts printing weird characters.Thank you.

Right,thats what i am telling you.I've already tried this.There is only one .inf file i.e., TSMUSB90 which shows up the error that THE HARDWARE INFORMATION IS NOT CORRECT or something like that from HAVE DISK option.

then that is not the correct driver for your printer.
you have to find the correc tone first - eg, for which OS..

Thanks for your nobus and hdhondt.I have figured out the problem myself.Actually You neend to setup the printer by Add Printer Wizard and when the drivers list appears on the right side we need to choose GENERIC and on the right hand side, choose Generic Text Only.Thats it.It will install the required drivers and my printer is Dot Matrix it will start working.Thank you.
