How can I setup a network printer (TCP/IP) for certain users in an easy way?
Posted on 2016-11-07
We have an expensive Canon color network printer, about 20 out of 50 users need to print to it.
In the past, we configured this printer on a server then share this printer on the server. But we have had some problems. For example, when printing some Excel files or PDF files, the app might crash. And, sometimes we would have to power cycle the printer in order to make it back to work again.
So we would like to configure all these 20 users print "directly" to the printer without using the print server. We have manually set it up on each PC but we think there must be some easy ways to do this rather than going thru the computers one by one.
Also, to save color toner, we would like to make Black printing as the default
