IPP Print Server for Windows XP [SOLUTION]

Michael Phipps's picture

Long story short. I've been searching for an IPP Print Server for Windows XP (like CUPS for Linux) and I've only been finding instructions on how to set up Windows XP to print to a network print via IPP (ie: client setup, not server setup)

Finally, I found the solution!

Setting Up IPP Printers on Windows XP Professional

  1. Install Internet Information Services (IIS).

    • Open the Control Panel. Select Add or Remove Programs, then Add/Remove Windows Components.

    • Select the check box for Internet Information Services (IIS) from the list of available Windows Components (shown in the following figure).

    • With IIS highlighted, select Details. Ensure that World Wide Web Service is selected (shown in the following figure).

    • With World Wide Web Service highlighted, select Details. Ensure that Printers virtual directory is selected (shown in the following figure).

  2. Restart Windows XP.

  3. Share the printers.

    • From the Start menu, select Settings, then Printers and Faxes.

    • Right-click the printer icon and select Sharing.

    • In the printer Properties dialog, select Share this printer and assign a Share name (for example: myprinter1). An example is shown in the following figure.

  4. Configure the Windows Firewall to open a port to your XMLP Server:

    • From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

    • From the Control Panel, select Windows Firewall.

    • From the Windows Firewall dialog, select the Exceptions tab.

    • Create an entry in the list of Programs and Services as follows:

      1. Select Add Port.

      2. Enter the Name: for example, Web

        Enter the Port number: for example, 80

        Select TCP.

        An example is shown in the following figure:

    • To allow access from a specific IP address only:

      1. Select your entry, then select Edit.

      2. From the Edit a Program dialog, select Change Scope.

      3. Choose Custom list, and enter the IP address of the XMLP Server.

        Note that if you use the HTTP proxy server in BI Publisher Server, you must enter the IP address of the proxy server.

        An example is shown in the following figure.

  5. Change the virtual directory security setting.

    • From the Control Panel, select Administrative Tools, then Internet Information Service.

    • Navigate the Internet Information Service directory hierarchy as follows: Internet Information Services > [your server name] > Web Sites > Default Web Site > Printers. Right-click Printers and choose Properties.

    • From the Printers Properties dialog, select the Directory Security tab.

    • In the Anonymous access and authentication control region, select Edit.

    • In the Authentication Methods dialog, select the Anonymous access check box. An example is shown in the following figure.

  6. Open a browser in a remote machine and enter the following URL: http://<your server name>/printers

    You will see the list of shared printers.
