deleted it. I dont have the orginal configuration .Is there any special

Hi,

How can NDPS/iPrint use a printer locally attached to a Windows NT,
Windows 2000 or Windows XP?

INTRODUCTION

In order for iPrint to successfully print via a Windows 2000/XP PC,
certain network components need to be installed. This document
explains how to install and configure these components.

PROCEDURE

The procedure consists of three parts:

1. Checking if the service is installed?
2. Installing the Service
3. Setting the services to start automatically.
4. Share the local printer as PASSTHROUGH

1. Checking if the service is installed?

a) Click | Start | Settings | Control Panel |
b) Double click "Add or Remove Programs"
c) Click "Add/Remove Windows Components" on the left hand side
of the screen.
d) Scroll down the list of components to "Other Network File
and Print Services"
e) If there is a tick next to it then the services are already
installed.
f) Click Cancel and close "Add / Remove programs" and "Control
panel

**Note**

If there is no tick next to Other Network File and Print Services then
the service needs to be installed. See point 2 below.

**End of note**

2. Installing the Service:

a) Carry on from "point f" above.
b) Select "Other Network File and Print Services" to place a
tick in the box.
c) Click <Next>.
d) If you are asked to insert the "Windows XP CD", Click <OK>
and enter "M:\Winxp\i386| in the box provided.
e) When the install is complete click <Finish>.
f) Restart the PC.

3. Setting the services to start automatically

a) On the desktop, right click "My Computer" and choose
"Manage"
b) This opens the "Computer Management" screen
c) Double-click "Services and Applications" in the right hand
pane.
d) Double-click "Services".
e) Scroll down to "TCP/IP Print Server". Right-click on it and
choose "Properties"
f) Select "Automatic" from the Startup type list and click
<OK>

4. Share the local printer as PASSTHROUGH

a) Click Start | Settings | Printers and Faxes
b) Right-click the local printer and select Sharing
c) Click "Share this Printer" and enter the name as
PASSTHROUGH
d) Restart the PC

**End**


Now create the printer in iPrint, using the 'host' PC's IP and the
printer name PASSTHROUGH.
