Network Implementation and Support Lesson 08 Printers - Eric Vanderburg

  1. 1. Network Implementation & Support Chapter 8 Implementing & Managing Printers Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  2. 2. Terms • • • • • Print Device Printer Print Driver Print Server Print Client Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  3. 3. Printing Process 1. User prints from app 2. App contacts GDI (Graphical Device Interface) 3. GDI contacts print driver for printer info, renders (combines printer info & document) 4. GDI sends rendered job to the print spooler 5. Client side spooler contacts server side spooler 6. Server side spooler contacts print router Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  4. 4. 7. Print router determines if the printer is local or remote. a. b. Local: job forwarded to local print provider Remote: finds remote print provider for that print server & that print provider sends the data to the print server local print provider 7. Local print provider finds a print processor that can process the print job 8. Print processor contacts GDI for further rendering (if required) 9. Print processor sends job to separator processor 10. Job is sent to the port monitor which is connected to the printer. Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  5. 5. Concepts • Changing spool directory – Printers & Faxes – File  Server Properties  Advanced tab – Type a new location – See pg. 321 Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  6. 6. Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  7. 7. Concepts • Adding a printer (local / remote) • Sharing a printer – Print – Manage Documents – Manage Printers • • • • Printer Pooling Printer Priorities (per share, 99 is best) Additional drivers for other OS’s IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) – Requires IIS (Internet Information Services) – http://printserver/printers Eric Vanderburg © 2006

  9. 9. Scripting • Prncnfg.vbs – printer configuration – -g : Required. Specifies that you want to display configuration information about a printer. – -t : Required. Specifies that you want to configure a printer. – -s RemoteComputer : Specifies, by name, the remote computer that manages the printer about which you want to display information. If you do not specify a computer, the local computer is used. – -p PrinterName : Required. Specifies, by name, the printer about which you want to display information. – -u UserName -w Password : Specifies an account with permissions to connect by using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) services – -l Location : Specifies the printer location, such as "Copier Room." – -m Comment : Specifies the comment string. – -h ShareName : Specifies the share name. – -f SeparatorText : Specifies a file that contains the text that appears on the separator page. – To keep spooled jobs after printing:  cscript prncnfg.vbs -t -s Root  -p TheBeast +keepprintedjobs Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  10. 10. Scripting • • • • • • • • • {+ | -}shared : {+ | -}direct : Specifies whether the document should be sent directly to the printer without being spooled. {+ | -}published :  {+ | -}rawonly : Specifies whether only raw data print jobs can be spooled on this queue. {+ | -}queued : Specifies that the printer should not begin to print until after the last page of the document is spooled. {+ | -}keepprintedjobs : Specifies whether the spooler should retain documents after they are printed. Enabling this option allows a user to resubmit a document to the printer from the print queue instead of from the printing program. {+ | -}workoffline : Specifies whether you should be able to send print jobs to the print queue even if your computer is not connected to the network. {+ | -}enabledevq : Specifies whether print jobs that do not match the printer setup (for example, PostScript files spooled to non-PostScript printers) should be held in the queue rather than being printed. {+ | -}docompletefirst : {+ | -}enablebidi : Specifies whether the printer sends status information to the spooler.

  11. 11. Scripting • Prndrvr.vbs – -a : Specifies that you want to install a driver. – -d : Specifies that you want to delete a driver. – -m DriverName : Specifies, by name, the driver you want to install. Drivers are often named for the model of printer they support. See the printer documentation for more information. – -v {0 | 1 | 2 | 3} : Specifies the version of the driver you want to install. (0=9x, 1=NT3, 2=NT4, 3=2k/XP) – -e Environment (x86, Alpha, R4000, PowerPC) – cscript prndrvr.vbs -a -m "Color Printer Driver 1"  -v 3 -e "Windows NT x86" Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  12. 12. Scripting • Prnport.vbs – change ports – -a : Required. Specifies that you want to create a standard TCP/IP printer port. – -r PortName : Required. Specifies the port to which the printer is connected. – -s RemoteComputer :  – -h IPAddress : Required. Specifies the IP address you want to assign to the port. – -u UserName -w Password :  – -o {raw -n PortNumber | lpr} : Specifies which protocol the port uses: TCP raw or TCP LPR. If you use TCP raw, specifies the port number for a TCP raw printer port. (Default port is 9100) – -q QueueName : Specifies the queue name for a TCP raw port. – cscript prnport.vbs -t -r PortName -s Root -o raw -n 8521 -h 192.168.0.10 -q NtQueue -i Index1 -u evanderburg w OrangeJuice – To list all printer ports:  cscript prnport.vbs -l -s Root Eric Vanderburg © 2006
  13. 13. Scripting • Prnmngr.vbs – set default printer, add printer connection – – – – -a : Required. Specifies that you want to add a local printer. -x : Required. Specifies that you want to delete all printers.   -s RemoteComputer :  -p PrinterName : Required. Specifies, by name, the local printer that you want to add. – -m DriverName : Required. Specifies, by name, the driver for the local printer you want to add. Drivers are often named for the model of printer they support. See the printer documentation for more information. – -r PortName : Required. Specifies the port to which the printer is connected. If this is a parallel or a serial port, use the ID of the port (for example, LPT1 or COM1). If this is a TCP/IP port, use the port name that was specified when the port was added. -u UserName -w Password : – cscript prnmngr.vbs -x -s Root -p TheBeast -u evanderburg w OrangeJuice Eric Vanderburg © 2006
