Exercise 1 - Setting up Windows Printing Service

A print server is a computer that connects print devices to client computers over a network. It accepts print jobs or requests from other computers then redirects them to the assigned printers. Print servers have the capability to queue the documents for printing, rearrange their order when required, delete the pending documents for printing and perform an accounting like counting the pages by reading data generated by the print devices.

In this exercise, you will install a local printer initially. Then configure a network printer on a server and share it with users.

Exercise 2 - Troubleshooting Common Network Printing Problems

Printers are one of the heavily used equipment in a networked environment. As such these devices can breakdown if not maintained properly. In this exercise, you will learn how to troubleshoot common network printing problems.
