Sharing Printers

Printing has an interesting place in the seemingly long history of PC networking (although it has only been a little more than 20 years); the ability to share printers, along with file sharing, was one of the key reasons personal computers were networked in the first place. A shared printer on a network is a printer that accepts print jobs from more than one computer.

When you connect a printer to a server on the network and configure it to share print resources with users on the network, it is referred to as a print server. Different terms are also often used to designate where the printer is actually located on the network.
