    Hi,

    I work with a network of 30 win 98 client machines and 1 nt 4.0 server on a tcp/ip cat 5 10/100 network. I want to use an old win 95 machine as a dedicated print server so that prints can be seen and deleted by all that look at that machine. Can anyone tell me how to do this and the software that i will need. Free software would be best.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Well, I've used old W98 machines as print servers, and no software is required, other than Windows. I presume W95 will do the trick, though it's been many years since I tinkered with W95. Just setup File & Print sharing and share the printer. It should appear as a shared resource in your workgroup.

    Interesting post, that's certainly another way. :)
