Internet printing(microsoft internet printing) issue on different operating systems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using microsoft internet printing(i.e. Internet printing makes it possible for client computers running Microsoft Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 (SP2) to use printers located anywhere in the world by sending print jobs using Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)).It has been configured on windows server 2008 r2 64 bit machine.So whenever any user having 64 bit machine tried to connect with this server through internet printing protocol he/she can easily connect to the printer.

    But when a user having 32 bit os machine try to connect this server it gives driver error or drivers not found error.The issue that i analyze is user request is not smart enough to differentiate between 32 bit/64 bit drivers.So anybody have any idea how to cope up with this issue.

    Many Thanks in advance.
