- Native printer driver
- ThinPrint Engine installed on the server
- ThinPrint Hub with configured printers
Let’s get started
- Create a ThinPort using the ThinPrint Configuration on the server you want the printer to be installed (e.g. your print server). Normally you don’t have to change the configuration of the port except the TCP port 4000 of the server is blocked from another program.
- Open Microsoft print management and go on like you want to add a normal printer to your server and run the “Add printer”-wizard.
- Choose “Add a new printer using an existing port:” and choose your created ThinPort.
- In the next step choose or install a printer driver.
- Now you have to add the printer name and here comes the trick. We need the IP address of the ThinPrint Hub as well as the printer ID of the printer configured on the ThinPrint Hub in the printer name.
The printer name should look like the example below.
