I am working in a small company running Windows 7 with Active Directory, and we have two self-hosted printers on the network (a Dell 2335dn B&W MFP, and a 2155cn color MFP). I can connect to these printers just fine on any computer by finding them by IP address and adding them by hand, but it's kind of a pain and I would like new employees (or existing employees with new computers) to be able to just click "Add network printer" in Devices and Printers, select B&W or color, and press go.
I have tried installing the printers on a server and adding them to Active Directory, and they do show up in the automatic scan when I do this, but if I try to connect I get an error:
Also, the host should be "king", not "kin"--on AD it lists the host correctly. Again, I can connect and print just fine using IP, and the server that the AD printer is installed on can print with no problems. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
