Remote Printing support

Posted on Mar 17 2017 - 1:54pm by Techy Hints

The remote printing process is largely the same as the local printing process, except for the need to forward the print job across the network to the print server in the middle of the process. The following steps outline the remote printing process:

1. The user prints from within an application.

2. The application contacts the GDI.

3. The GDI contacts the print driver for printer-specific information, renders the job, and delivers the job to the print spooler.

4. The client-side of the spooler contacts the server-side spooler.

5. The server-side spooler contacts the print router in Microsoft windows.

6. The print router locates a remote print provider that can forward the job to the appropriate print server and transfers the job to the remote print provider.

7. The remote print provider forwards the job across the network to the remote print server, where the local print provider receives it.

8. The local print provider polls the print processors to find one that can process the type of data that is contained in the print job and send the job to the appropriate print processor.

9. The print processor contacts the GDI to further render the job if required to make it print properly in Microsoft windows xp.

10. The print processor sends the job to the page separator processor, in which a separator page is added if required.

11. The job is then sent to the appropriate port monitor, which ultimately delivers the job to the printer.

It can be done easily and if you have technical problems with your computers then the brands have their own support teams to provide printer support to the customers.
