Sure it's possible.  If only for testing, and you won't be printing from those Win7 computers (except maybe some test pages) there shouldn't be a problem.

Just install it as an IP printer as usual, share it, and test away with your Win7 machines.

you should be able to browse to it.

Start > Run >

You should see shared printer.  Right click and choose connect

As long as the printer IP is not already setup as a port on the test server.  You can set it up even though it's on server1.

See attached.  Update for your printer IP and driver.  Also, at the end, click Yes to Share this printer.

A printer can have multiple "feeds" whether it be from one server with multiple queues (i.e. forced Mono, Duplex, Colour), or from multiple servers (i.e. different domains)

Just add the device as above and share it - and point the workstations to the server and not the direct IP of the device.

There is no "logic" to which jobs print first, it's on a first come, first served basis unless you use this on the same server with print pooling - although it looks at a primary device first.

Pcounter offers true print pooling with true round robin - as well as it's normal audit, control and accountability controls.

Just to add, if you try to add an additional printer from the same server to the same IP , you'll get a Port in use error. Just change the bottom window (port name) to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxxb
