just a discussion of printers here.
If I go to add a printer,
I have two choices. The local printer or a network printer.
And there's some discussion about what a network printer is.
If I have a laptop over here,
I have a server over here
with the printer are hanging off of it,
and I have another printer down here
that stand alone and has its own I P address on it.
And if these were all connected together
so everybody can see everybody
if I want to install
this printer over here,
this is a never surrender.
The reasons in our printer is that the printer itself, the print device
is which is Microsoft's term for it.
The print device with Ian cartridges and everything is controlled by some
server or is tell me
system on the network.
However, this printer down here, the bottom,
even those on the network.
If I go to install it on my system, it's a local printer,
and the reason is there's no control device
between this printer
and without a control device. When I print to it, my laptops talking directly to the printer.
So it's local to that printer in terms of who's got the control
the local laptop has to control.
my laptop talks to the server
and the server talks to the printer.
That's what creates it as a network device.
So if we go back and take a look at
If I go to add a network printer
it's going to come up. And it's going to be in looking for
printers that it confined
and the server they're connected. Thio.
And if I browse for a printer,
it's looking for a computer name.
But if I go back and do and a printer at a local friend, er
and I tell it that I want to create a new port,
I created T C P I. P Port,
and that's when I'm gonna go directly to the I. P address of the print device,
and I'm gonna talk to if he's there
and because my laptop is controlling the printing to that device.
And there's nobody else in between me and the printer. It's a local printer because control was handled locally on my laptop,
so it's not whether it's plugged in directly to you or where there's down. An Ethernet cable is who's controlling sending the printing to the printer.
If our servers doing it, then it's a network function, and I'm talking to the server in the server. Talk to the
If my laptop's talking directly to the printer,
then I'm in control and it's local to me for control,
just something that comes up
and the way you can tell
I go to this device, for instance,
and I would pull up the properties.
I don't get the port
I'm sending directly to an I P address here
So to me, that's a local printer.
and in Control Panel, you can see a whole bunch of things to look at
again. It's good to go in
and just kind of poke around. Here's another way to get the device manager
Same device manager.
This is the actual the options for a new next four.
That's how you can get to them
pro programs and features.
This is what in Windows X P was add remove programs.
It is good to go in here times and say, Why do I have this happen here?
Why do I have that happen here?
Did I just quick on this one day and accidentally get it
like Google toolbar for Internet Explorer?
If you don't want that,
then right click and hit on install.
So now it's saying there's another user log into this computer and I'm saying Continue anyway.
And Google doesn't want to uninstall until it can talk to itself.
So we'll bypass that
and down here, the bottom Windows firewall.
And you can see it's not just that the fire walking we turned on or off
is that the firewall can be turned on or off
for he to those three options.
So do I want it on for domain settings,
homer work settings or public network locations.
So public network location would be something like, um, accessing
Internet, an airport er in Starbucks.
Well, you have absolutely
no knowledge of who else is on the network or what threats might exist
in a home or private network setting.
You can be a little more free because you're a little more likely to want to access a printer or share a printer. Or let somebody else come on your machine and get a file.
And if you're in the domain setting you, the main idea here is that in the domain network setting have probably the most trusted setting because it's a Maness environment
with other people whom you trust,
or at least other people who are managed.
So you can. When you want to turn off the firewall, you can turn it off for one or all of these settings.
And with the domain, home or public
is actually related. Thio
Oh, and sorry. You can also go in here,
there's a button here to restore defaults.
The reason you need a button to restore default is because there's a button here for advanced settings,
or you can go in right inbound and outbound rules.
And if you happen to break one of these connections,
then I'm taking you back to the defaults
and what we're looking at here are different traffics that allowed in and out
file transfer program hates peewee
printer install wizard Internet Explorer.
So it's not just does the system works is that there are a lot of things here that it has specifically allowed to communicate one direction or another.
And if you find something is blocked by your firewall or you think it's blocked by your firewall, one way to deal with that
is temporarily going here
just open the firewall of everything.
once you've done that, if your application or whatever your troubleshooting works
and then you turn these back on and it breaks again,
then you're pretty sure that you determine the firewall is the issue.
You could then go into the logs
or going to net stat
and see what traffic actually is.
And that's a point where you can come back here into advanced settings
and this created new rule.
And with the new rule,
or another Apple case and that you're running her out.
So here's where you can create rules.
So the idea is, go ahead and use the on off
on firewalls headings to test
to make sure that the firewalls the problem. Once you know the fire Walter problem, don't just leave it off. Actually configure it to allow the permitted traffic through, and then turn it back on.
back to the first set of rules here
and take a look at this one last time.
All of these items you should have some familiar
how would recommend you go into each one of them
and at least poke around to see what the settings are
and then used the Internet to use Windows, help
use Microsoft documentation upon their sight
and get some feel for what each one of these processes runs
and then some of them. You also need to remember our platform specific
and the ones that platform specific you should remember their part for specific
it matters to you why you can't find something out one system and you can on another,
especially looking at things like Home Group will talk about home group.
Home group is a special setting, the kind of replaces the workgroup function
and in laws used to create a interconnected home network,

I wouldn't convert this back for a minute
right now. I'm gonna let you see that
I was long gone as two different people right now. One session
for the administrator.
One session for J. Mays.
I'm gonna go back into the game a session.
J. Mays is connected to
if I do this because I know the
address of a particular server,
I'm getting challenged now. But if I know the right commands to put into this,
I can now see some shares.
These shares are from a server running on running in this environment.
I want to take this share
and let's say I want to make it a permanent Dr Water so I don't have to go through this every time I want to find it.
Then I can map a network drive
and let's say I want to call this one
just for final call. Q.
Now that I've done that, if I go back to
I know I have a new drive called the Q Dr
and the Cook On the cue. Dr. Notice it's got a
wire connected to a hard drive that's hard drive over wire or network storage,
items from a server not on my computer.
and that is a shared Dr
and had a map, a shared drive to
