add network printer
« on: April 17, 2012, 06:17:20 PM »
hello!

in a pc, I run WinXP and I have a network printer available

I want to create another instance of that printer, but with a specific tray chosen as default

how can I do this?

I try to add the printer, but I cant go through the process, WinXP offers to find it, but it founds nothing, or maybe I dont search correctly

any hint?

thanks

Yeah, I'd like to know how to do this too.  Tried a few times, struck out.

Add printer wizard
Local Printer (uncheck auto-detect & install)
Create new port with it's IP Address, or select the one it already uses
Point it at the correct driver
next, next, next...
done.

Printer properties, General Tab -> Preferences Button
Paper/Quality Set type to what you want it to use
Load media in a preselected tray, and set that tray to the type selected.
