2. Printer (I Configured On HP Officejet 5600 Series)
3. Printer Drivers (Need to Install On Connecting Printer Machine)
4. IP Address In same range (Connect All Machines & Printer In Same LAN with same IP range)

Note: All Setup should be happen in Administrator account only (Connected Printer machine & Client Machine also)
Printer Connected IP Address:

2.Connect 'n' no of system on same network (LAN)
3.Assign IP address and gateway in same range
4.Go to Start→control panel & click on Printer & Faxes (Connected Printer Machine)
5.Right click on Printer & Faxes → Share → Share this Printer → Apply → OK .
6.Go to client machine and check connectivity with Installed Printer system with ping
7. Go to Run → \\ ( Printer Installed IP Address) → Printer & Faxes → Open → right click on shared printer → connect. (In Client Machine)
