Adding Network Printer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    Firstly sorry for my bad english this will be hard for me :)

    İ'm trying to do a program that scans the network and find the printers ip and model informations. Then add this printers to local computer. As i understand the only way to found the network printer that unistalled is to ping each ip. İ did this. My program is pinging each ip and find the printers. Then i get the model information from the printers web html. Now finally i should add this printers automaticly to local pc. And i think i should specify the printers driver to do this. Can you guys help me please. (Sorry for my bad english again but i can't find source in my language).

  • Hi Craedra, 

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I have some questions to confirm with you.

    What’s the type of your application?

    >>And i think i should specify the printers driver to do this

    Are you looking for a printer driver? If so, I hope the following reference can help you.

  • İ don't know the type of the application but it's a network printer adder or something like that. I only need to know how to add a network printer. İ know the printer model name (example: Samsung ML-371x), and the printer ip adresses (example: 10.222.36.21) and i have all the printer drivers setup in my pc. İ wan't to do this = When i press the install button in the windows form application the program should add the network printers in order and the user won't see the installation he/see will see the process bar. After the application finish all the printer addings a will show a messagebox "İnstallation completed". i don't want to use sql server to take printer information.

    Please help me i'm not good at c# :/

    i would be appreciative if you help. Thanks a lot
