Connect To Network Printers Using Windows XP

  • Click on Start button.PNG
  • Click on RUN.
  • Type \\server-name\queue-name where server-name is the name of the print server (bombay, in most cases) & queue-name is unique for the printer (typically in the form of three-letter building abbreviation followed by room number; ex. LIB202


The above steps will not work properly if the computer is a) not bound to the middlebury.edu docmain (only should apply to college-owned computers) or b) is not logged in with a network account with printing privileges.


Bombay also has a web address allowing installation of printers at http://bombay.middlebury.edu/printers if logged into the domain, using Internet Explorer, and inside the college firewall.
