Hallo! I do like to dream, and dream big for that matter. I have not been so much into networking and coding, but I would like to know if there is a utility to find printers on network, listing them and possibly printing using the ones that do not have restrictions. If the task is not so difficult, then I would also like to get a code that can accomplish that task in any programming language. Can such utilities be used to add restrictions to the printers as well?
Is there a utility to find printers on network and possible printing?
Here are a few easy methods to go about finding printer on a network.
a. A network printer with built-in Ethernet port commonly offers a menu button that will permit you to display IP address allocated to it. You might likewise attempt printing configuration page and self-test from the printer.
b. From the menu display option, if you failed to find an IP address of a network printer and the printer is connected to a printer server with not viewable and you can also discover the IP address of your printer from any other networked machine configured to use the printer. For discovering the printer IP address from a Windows Computer, complete the following steps:
Click on Start > “Printers and Faxes” OR Go to “Control Panel” Section then click on “Printers and Faxes”
Right click on the printer (name) and then left-click on Properties.
Click on the Ports tab section, and expand the 1st column which shows the IP-address of the printer.
