brother printer 7365dn

I want my server (window 2008 R2 64 bits) printing to above printer model. But after the driver is installed, it still does not recognize it. But when I install window 7 driver on window 7 desktop.  It is working fine.

Any one has ideas how to fix it?

Is this printer connected to the network, versus directly to the server?

If so, it may be easier to manually install the printer:


In your start menu, select Devices And Printers


Select Add a Printer


Select Add a local or network printer as Administrator


Select Add a Local Printer


Select Create a new port, selecting Standard TCP/IP from the drop down list


Enter the IP address for the printer as the Hostname AND the Port Name


Continue through the prompts, one of the steps will ask you to select a driver for the printer, browse to where you have the driver saved to.
