Fog Printer won't deploy



  • I can’t seem to get my printers to deploy from fog. The fog log says:

  • If your computers are tied in through active directory you may want to look at group policy and adding printers through this method. I’ve found this to be extremely helpful and easy. ^_^

    Sadly, I wasn’t able to make an install for local printers. HOWEVER, we went and set up a Windows printer server which contains both of the 64-bit and 32-bit drivers for the printers (obviously because we have 32-bit computers, and the server is 64 bit), and we just use the “network printer” option and type in \printerserver\printer_name. Of course, you have to make sure you’re sharing the printer from the server too :).
