Add Printers from a Windows PC

With ezeep Blue, one way of sharing printers with your users is from a Microsoft Windows PC. This setup is ideal for home offices, normal offices or shared workspaces, where many users or employees would like to utilize the same printer or set of printers for on-site printing from their own devices. Existing print environments can be connected to the cloud using the ezeep Blue Connector apps with minimal effort, too.

To publish the printers you have hosted on a PC to the cloud, you will need:

  • A Windows PC that hosts the printer(s) you would like to share with your users, such as these:Add Printers from a Windows PC
  • The ezeep Connector for Print Server: This software component runs as a Windows background service and publishes your local printer information to the cloud and your ezeep Blue account. (Note: The connector will upload every printer on your Windows PC to the cloud. If you wish to remove a printer from ezeep, it will have to be removed from the Windows system on your connector PC. 

Download and Install the ezeep Blue Connector for Print Servers on the Microsoft Windows device.

First, download the ezeep Connector for Print Server from the ezeep admin portal Quickstart Step 1.

Then, run the installer and follow the prompts.
