A new Windows 2008 printer server has been installed to support departemental printing. The server is named – edit 2014-11-18 renamed to This server can support printing from Windows XP, Windows Vista (32 and 64 bit) and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). Printer drivers are automatically installed by connecting to the printer server and selecting the print queue.


  • Currently very little problems occurred


  • Only for standard, frequent installed, common available printers (HP LaserJet, Xerox, Ricoh)
  • Little protection against abuse
  • Cannot make use of the CnCZ print budget software, so no accounting or print budget facilities

This implies that only printers that are not publically available should be considered adding to this server. Please contact CnCZ to figure out if a printer is suitable for installation.

See Printers_en_printen for an explanation how to connect printers.
