Printer mapping without print server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to the whole printer/print server stuff. Was wondering if the below could be achieved

    Is it possible to  map network printers without using print server. Wondering about hosting a site on IIS using infopath for users to access and map printers themselves.(mapping script runs in the background) Kind of self service portal for mapping printers. There is no print server available.

  • Hi,

    In my experience, what you need is to have a computer hosting printer and then share this printer out. Here is an article discussing more details, please see:
