Hi how u doin. (your time is very much appreciated, mercy).

I am trying to replace an old printer at work which is connected to a network of 5 computers trough a server.
I simply swapped the power and input leads to the new printer but dont think any of the 5 computers can find the printer.
I am struggling with even this, god knows how im going to set the fax bit up haha.

Thanks so much to anyone who reads this and can help me.
Really. your advice is much appreciated
Thanks again

Can you see the printer from the machine which the drivers are installed on. If not try reinstalling the drivers.

You may well be able to look up the ip address of the printer using the printer menu panel. I assume it is connected by ethernet. If it is connected by USB then try reinstalling the drivers and then set it up as a print share for the other machines in the same domain/workgroup to see.

simple question
what printer is it and has the software for it been installed on the PCs?

A lot of office printers need to be "found" across the network by their own bespoke software
