I am installing a Xerox Color Phaser (has Ethernet) on a Windows 2003 school network. The printer will need to be available to all of the workstations on the network (two buildings). Since the server is running 24/7, I was going to install it on the server and share it across the network. Or, I can install it directly to the network vis the Ethernet port. If it is connected directly to the server and shared, I will not need to load the drivers on every workstation, correct? But, if it was installed directly onto the network (Ethernet port), I would have to install the driver on every computer, yes?
And, assuming the above is true, is it more beneficial to have the printer connected directly to the network?
