I posted last day about how to configure  Network connections of computer or called LAN. Now next to configure is the connection of the printer using the network connection of the computer. One of the purpose why we need to configure the Network Connections, it is because we need the common devices that we need in our offices or with our home. Such as the printer or we called it network printer. Because it not acceptable that every computer in our offices have its individual printer. Therefore, one of the computer needs to host the printer so that all of the computer within the networks can perform the hard copy of the files.


Another use of the Network connections is the file and folder sharing. This is one of the most common use of the networks because all of us, as a user of the computer we are dealing with the processing of a files or documents. And this documents commonly stored in a folder or directory.


Just follow the instruction below how to configure the printer connection of your network or in your LAN. But before you on, assured that you configured properly your network connections, the workgroup and the TCP/IP.
