Print Server Help with Epson TM-U220 Printer

I'm trying to make my Windows 7 computer act as a print server for my TM-U220 Ethernet printer.

The TM-U220 uses an advance printer driver and installs using the IP Address you provide.

After I install the printer, I would normally share it, then go to each computer and connect to the printer.  But that's not truly a print server right?

I turned on the Printer Sever settings on my Windows 7 computer, and the printer is installed.  What else do I need to do?

Sorry if this is kind of vague.  I appreciate your help!

It seems you don't have any issues.

Once the printer has been properly configured and shared on the network, the only thing to do is to add the shared printer on the other client computers.

Is it something you are looking for? :)

Well, I'm installing software that is used in a restaurant.  I want the server computer to manage the print jobs, so I installed the two network printers there.  When I start the software and try to set up a printer I get a message that says "can not securely connect to the print server"...  I don't know why it says that.  There is no documentation with the software, so I was trying to figure out if I was missing something.

Additionally, when I add the printer to a workstation by connecting to the shared printer, my test page works, but only the physically installed printers show up on the list inside the program.  The software says it should see printers connected to a print server...  But this doesn't seem to be the case, or I am doing something wrong.

Examples I've seen regarding setting up a print server show making a tcp/ip port and linking it to lpt1.  I can't follow those steps because the driver for the tm-u220 is in the Epson advanced printer driver and it does not show up in the list of drivers and can't be linked to by browsing.  Anyway that all seems redundant if the computer can just manage print jobs from the shared printer...

I don't know...

Thanks for the reply :)

Turns out there's a tool you need to use for the software.  Who knew?  Thanks for your response though, it helped me know I'm not crazy.
