Presentation Transcript

  1. Overview • Printing Strategy • Ethernet Print Devices • Printer Shares • Hybrid Printer Strategy • Managing Printer Use CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  2. Printing Strategy CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  3. Printing Strategy • Why? What is the alternative? • Of course, you can’t toss it all and start over • Purchasing uniformly • Installing uniformly • Connecting appropriately CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  4. Printing Strategy • Print Devices by connection type • Direct Cabled: Parallel or USB • Ethernet • Share • Includes Print Server strategy • Sharing computer may be direct-cable to print device or via Ethernet (or even via another share) CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  5. Printing Strategy Terminological oddity #1 CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  6. Printing Strategy Terminological oddity #2 CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  7. Printing Strategy CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  8. Ethernet Print Devices CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  9. Ethernet Print Devices: Installing Printer • Who may install: Admins • Who sees it: All Users CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  10. Ethernet Print Devices: Installing • IP Address and IP hostname • Probably gets one from DHCP • To see address, print internal test page, or read off of LCD • Probably want to change it, to protect from DHCP changes. (When not?) 4th octet above 231. CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  11. Ethernet Print Devices: Installing • Ways to change: LCD control panel. HTTP interface. Old HP network tool. HP tool built into recent driver installers. • Also change Method • Consider using name instead. Either cryptic generated one, or make your own. “LABLASER” for example. CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  12. Ethernet Print Devices: Installing Printer • Manufacturer’s disk • 95 and 98, old HP network tool • 2000 and XP, regular MS Add Printer wizard • Logged on as admin • Add as local, clear checkbox for Auto detect PnP • Can reuse existing TCP/IP port? • Or create new port (continued) CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  13. Ethernet Print Devices: Installing Printer • 2000 and XP, regular MS Add Printer wizard (continued) • Or create new port • Give IP numerical address of print device • OR give hostname of print device • After creating port, Add Printer wizard continues • All users should see that printer • (suspend PPT, do live demo of Wizard) CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  14. Printer Shares CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  15. Printer Shares: Installing • Who may install: Any User • Who sees it: Users who have installed • Problem: many student users CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  16. Printer Shares: Installing • Install as local on hosting computer. • Share from there. Choose share name systematically. • On other computers, install as Network Printer. (In MS sense.) • Short cut: Browse or Search to print share, right click, choose Install or Connect. CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  17. Printer Shares: Installing for many users • Problem: many student users • Answer 1: Let them run Add Printer Wizard • Answer 2: Deploy short cheap location-specific script (example on next slide) • Answer 3: Site-wide automatic, sophisticated script. • See Revere – Best with Print server CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  18. Printer Shares: Installing for many users • Short cheap location-specific script dim objNet set objNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network") objNet.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\I5560w000021798\HP2000C" ' objNet.SetDefaultPrinter "\\I5560w000021798\HP2000C" CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  19. Hybrid Printer Strategy CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  20. Hybrid Printer Strategy • Corresponding Pros and Cons of Ether and Share CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  21. Hybrid Printer Strategy CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  22. Hybrid Printer Strategy • Print Device uses Ethernet Interface • One Host connects to Print Device over Ethernet • If possible, takes sole control of it • That Host shares the Printer • Other computers use the share CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  23. Hybrid Printer Strategy • Is it a panacea? Best of both worlds? No. • Is it the worst of both worlds? No. • Advantages: • Can install by script • Can manage queue • Disadvantages: • Host must be on • Processing burden on host • Need local install for each user CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  24. Hybrid Printer Strategy • Those disadvantages not so big if the host is your server • Server is expected to be up • Server is less likely to be overburdened • Host name is not so obscure, and there’s just one. Helpful both for manual Wizard use and script. CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  25. Managing Printer Use CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp

  26. Managing Printer Use • Ethernet print device – little or no control • Share – watch queue • Hybrid (or Print Server) – manage like Share • Separate teacher and student submissions • Multiple printer entries for single print device • Use domain user/groups to control printing permissions CUIP Tech Coordinators Reboot Camp
