Windows 7 and printers

PC4N6 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am having issues with Windows 7 and printers on my network.  I have a 2003 SBS that is the print server, but it never works with Win7.  I think it is a driver issue, but not sure.  I have been able to add printers as TCP ports and point to their IP addresses.  However, end users dont have functionality of printer properties when I do that.  I have users who need to switch to color printing or use the letterhead tray.  How can I resolve this so it works properly with Windows 7 clients?
