Importing / Converting Windows Shared Printers

Coming soon!

Currently you can import references to Windows Shared Printers and allow end users to install Windows Shared Printers, while keeping your Active Directory Print Server in place.

Soon you will be able to import printer objects from your Windows servers and convert your end user Windows Shared Printers to Printer Installer managed TCP/IP printers.

By migrating from Windows Shared Printers to Printer Installer managed TCP/IP printers you get:

  • To Save Money by removing these expensive print server items:
    • Support and management
    • Operating system software and upgrades
    • Power consumption
    • Power redundancy
    • Hardware upgrades
    • Securing print servers
    • Server management
    • Backup software
    • Virus scanning software
    • Management software
    • Network hardware
    • Environment conditioning
    • Print server software redundancy
    • Print server hardware redundancy
    • Disaster recovery planning
    • Disaster recovery implementation
  • Increased print system availability
    With TCP/IP printers the print job data does not go through a print server, the print job goes directly from the end user computer to the physical printer, eliminating the print server point of failure.
  • Serverless remote offices
    With TCP/IP printers the print job data does not go through a print server, the print job goes directly from the end user computer to the physical printer, eliminating the need for a print server at each remote office.
