You can list Windows shared printers by creating a Windows Print Server Link. Once the link is created the shared printers on the specified print server will automatically be listed and kept in sync in the specified target folder. Once the printers are listed in a folder you can move them to the appropriate folder in the tree.
List Windows shared printers in a folder by doing the following:
Note: To view all Windows Print Server Links, click tools, Windows Print Server Links.
Note: If you are going to enable the Portal you should move the listed printers to the folder representing their physical location so that end users can browse the tree structure in the portal to find the printer by location. If you are not enabling the Printer Install Portal and will only be pushing printers to users it will not be necessary to move the printers to folders with names of geographic locations as end users will not be self installing printers.
Note: You can hide folders from the Printer Install Portal by right clicking the folder in the Printer Installer Administrator and selecting the Hide from Install Portal. See Hiding Folders for more information and example scenerios of when to use this feature.
