Windows printer types

Windows Printer Types

  • Locally attached printers

    • Connected directly to a physical computer port

    • Print job: document submitted by a client computer for processing through the logical printer

  • Network attached printers

    • Contain a network adapter or connect to a hardware print server that manages it

  • Using a logical printer on every client

    • Each computer acts as its own print server by maintaining the printer settings and drivers
