Note! All printer drivers of network printers that should be used by users on their end devices must be installed on the Workplace server. It is sufficient to manually connect as an administrator from the Workplace server with the rele­vant network printer (\\server\sharename). This installs the driver automati­cally or you will be prompted to select the appropriate driver.
