Chapter 5. Printing

Chapter 5. Printing

Print services have come a long way from the early incarnations of DOS and Unix. Each new release of Microsoft's operating systems has improved on printing in one way or another, and Windows 2000 is no exception. Setting up and using a printer is easy in most situations. But there are a few special problems you might run across with some of the new printing features in Windows 2000, as well as tried-and-true features.

For example, Windows 2000 supports the Internet Printing Protocol, or IPP, which enables clients to print across the Internet or an intranet using TCP/IP and HTTP. Clients can browse and manage remote printers through a web browser. Although Windows 2000 Server automatically configures the computer to share its printer(s) via IPP, Windows 2000 Professional does not. You'll find quick steps in this chapter to make your Windows 2000 Professional computer an IPP server.
