It is difficult with Windows (if possible), but you can download PRINTLOCK from http://www.printerpassword.com - it will allow you to password protect any printer.

You have to give the printer the same SSID and password of the network your using.If you have a user password for the printer for multiple users then you would have to ask the administrator or whoever set the printer up for the password.

Only if the printer is password protected. Generally not.

No it is not possible. When not part of a network you do not have the sufficient privileges to access the printer. If the network was setup as a VPN you would be able to connect it from an offsite location.

A network printer is shared by more than one computer. A local printer is directly connected to one computer. But the printer can be set up as a local or a network printer.

Network printing works like normal printing as far as your document is concerned, but the computer does a little more work. Normally, the computer sends the document to a printer physically plugged in to it and it prints. In this case, the printer isn't plugged in, but is instead on the network, usually connected another computer. The computer printing would send the data over the network to the computer hosting the printer as if the printer were plugged in to the local machine.

maybe, a network printer is any printer connected via network cable

After sharing the printer, add the users or groups that you want to have access to the printer, along with 'print' ability, such as 'create document' authority.

Information needed to assure successful configuration of a wireless printer for your wireless network includes your Wi-Fi network name and its password. Other information needed varies by operating system used in the network.

User Avatar

You must have a network capable printer, with either an internal or external network connection, or you may connect the printer to the network as a shared printer connected to a network computer.

A network printer is a USB printer connected to the network, and any computer connected to the same network can see and send data to the network printer. Using a single network printer means that each computer doesn't need to have their own printer.

That is a printer that is accessible to computers in a network

I think the main differences between a network printer and a shared printer are: 1. A shared printer is suitable for small environment A network printer used for large network 2. shared printer connected system not shutdown printer did not connect to the system it will connected to switch 3. A network printer has more security 4. A network printer has an IP address shared printer working only same platform

User Avatar

No, it does not have to be. You can make it accessible in wireless network if you connect it to one of computers working in that network. Some routers have on board print servers it makes possible connecting your printer directly to router (via USB).

User Avatar

You have be more specific about what sort of printer it is (local printer, network printer) and what sort of network you plan on incorporating it into (local area, wide area, wireless).

User Avatar

A network printer has its own IP address,. you can identify it by "pinging" the IP.

User Avatar

It is known as a local printer, as opposed to a network printer, which is a printer connected to a network.

User Avatar

Try restarting the printer. If it's a network printer, try disconnecting it from the network temporarily.

User Avatar

Either the network is down, the printer cable is not connected properly, the Windows print spool is stalled, or you have the wrong printer drives installed. The question above says that this is a local printer not a network printer.

User Avatar

To print a document, you must first install a printer. After your printer is installed, you simply choose the print option in the document.

User Avatar

If you printer has a printer server attached or network compatible, the answer is yes you can.

A network printer is shared by more than one computer. A local printer is directly connected to one computer.

User Avatar

A local printer is connected directly to a computer, either by wifi or cable. A network printer is connected to a home or business network and can be used by any computer connected to the home or business network.

Normally the font size is set when the document is being created, and before the document is sent to the printer. If it is possible to alter font size with in your printer - then go to the maker's website for instructions, or look through the user guide. It would have helped to give a specific answer if you had given the name and model of your printer, etc!
