Share a printer

බලමුකෝ අපි කොහොමද Printer ක් share කරන විදිහ.

If you have a printer attached to your computer, you can share it with anyone on the same network. It doesn’t matter what type of printer you have, as long it’s installed on your computer and is directly attached with a USB cable or other type of printer cable. The people you choose to share the printer with will be able to use it to print, as long as they first locate your computer on the network.

Printers that are directly connected to a network rather than attached to a computer are available to anyone on the same network. Such printers must have a network port or wireless connection that allows them to connect directly to the network.

Sharing a printer requires a few steps. First, on the computer that the printer is plugged in to, follow these steps.

  2. Click the chevron to expand the current network profile.
  3. If printer sharing is off, underFile and printer sharing, select Turn on file and printer sharing, and then click Save changes.  If you’re prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Now you need to share the printer itself.
