Connecting a HP2840 Color Laser printer to a server via USB and sharing on a network

Last Modified: 2015-07-12
I have a HP2840 Color Laser printer that I want to connect to my Server 2003 and allow to share on my network. The printer has a Ethernet connector in the back but 1) Can't seem to find the software and 2) the configuration is very sensitive to network changes and usually stops working after a few network mods.

Is it possible to connect the printer to my server via a USB and share?
