Connecting to a Remote Printer

A network printer is a printer that is not connected directly to your computer but is available through a network. It might be a free-standing networked printer, or it might be accessible through someone else’s computer, through a print server, or through a printer hub.

If the printer you are connecting to is available to everyone on the network, you will not need specific permission to connect to it. If the printer has been made available only to specific people or groups, you will have to ask the printer’s "owner" or your network administrator to make the printer available to you.

In this exercise, you will connect to a network printer. There are no practice files for this exercise.
