Installing & Configuring Printers (part 4)

This lesson concludes our discussion on printer installations with Infrared ports. Infrared requires a direct line of site to the targeted/desired port; it connects by transferring beams of light over the air, so the two ports must face each other with no barriers. All the above examples involve sharing two printers, for sharing printers over a network we use a printer server, a hardware device whose primary function is to manage print request amongst the printers connected to the network. It resembles a hub, has a dedicated port which connects to the host printer and ports on the opposite side for connecting to all the client computing systems that will be sending print job requests. Print servers can also be wireless if they have that capability built into it.  The printer hardware server with a wireless antenna connects to a printer with a USB printer port and then to other wireless printers for wireless connectivity.
