-This article describes how to connect a Windows 10 PC with a printer queue provided by the GWDG via gwdg-print3.gwdg.de. gwdg-print3 is a server with Windows 2019 as its operating system. We recommend gwdg-print3 to users who are setting up a GWDG printer queue for the first time (e.g. on a new PC).

 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Now click on "​Devices"​\\ 
 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_02.png|}} 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +and next on "​Printers and scanners"​ in the left column.\\ 
 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_03.png|}} 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Click on "Add a printer or scanner"​.\\ 
 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_04.png|}} 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Now, Windows is looking for new printers. But this won't be successfull here. So click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"​.\\ 
 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_05.png|}} 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +In the next step, Windows offers you to "Find a printer by other options"​. Choose "Select ​a shared printer by name". As an example we want to add a printer called ​"color" on gwdg-print3. So please enter  
 +''​\\gwdg-print3.gwdg.de\color''​ 
 +in the text field and click on "​Next"​.\\ 
 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_06.png|}} 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Windows is downloading the printerdriver from gwdg-print3 now. When this ist done, click on "​Next"​\\ 
 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_07.png|}}

 +{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​win10-drucken_engl_08.png|}} 
 +\\ 
 +\\
  
-Now select ​"View devices and printers" ​in the "Hardware ​and sound" ​category.\\ +Now you can see new printer as “color on gwdg-print3.gwdg.de”.\\ 
-{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​04_capture_010_25032015_144616.jpg?600}}+When the printer setup is done, it is a good idea to check which printer is the default printer now. Windows very often sets a new printer as the default printer. That's not always what you want. So it is a good idea to uncheck the box labled ​"Let Windows manage my default printer",\\

 +===== Howto install a GWDG printer queue on a Windows 10 Computer that is not in GWDG's Active Directory =====
  
-Select "​Add ​printer".\\ +The procedure is generally the same as [[https://​info.gwdg.de/​docs/​doku.php?​id=en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​start#​usage_on_windows_10_computers_in_gwdg_s_active_directory| described above]].

 +If your computer is not member of our Active Directory, Windows will ask for your user name and password when you try to connect to the print server. Enter gwdg\<​YOUR_GWDG_ACCOUNT>​ as user name (e.g.: gwdg\tgwd1) and your password. Klick on "Remember my password"​. Otherwise the printer you have just installed will not work after your next login.\\

-Now Windows is looking for printers in your network. Cancel this searching procedure by clicking on "the printer that I want isn't listed"​ \\ 
-{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​07_capture_014_25032015_145045.jpg?​600}} 
  
-Windows asks you to find a printer by other options now. Select "​Select a shared printer by name" and enter <​code>​\\gwdg-print.gwdg.de\<​NAME_OF_THE_PRINTER_QUEUE_YOU_WANT></​code>​ E.g: if you want to connect to the standard queue then enter <​code>​\\gwdg-print.gwdg.de\standard</​code>​.

-{{:​en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​print_server:​08_capture_015_25032015_145134.jpg?600}}+==== Printjob to large ==== 
 +Our printserver uses the so called Line Printer Daemon Protocol to transmit print jobs. Internally, the size of a print job is stored as a 32-bit integer variable. With 32 bit integer you can only "​count"​ up to 2GB. Larger print jobs might block the queue or produce an empty page. The only thing that helps is to delete the print job and reprint it in a lower resolution or split it into seperate documents.
  
-Windows installs the printer ​driver automatically. This might take some time. After the installation ​is compleated, you get the notification "​You'​ve successfully added standard ​on gwdg-print.gwdg.de". you can print test page now if you want+==== My printer is not shown ==== 
-{{:en:services:general_services:​print_scan_services:print_server:11_capture_019_25032015_150054.jpg?​600}}+Sometimes Windows 10 does not show all the installed printers ​on your PCIn this case press the winows key and "R" at the same time to run commandEnter\\

-===== Usage on Windows 8.1 from non Active Directory computers ===== +----
-The procedure is generally the same as [[#​usage_on_windows_81_computers_in_gwdg_s_active_directory | described above]].+
  
-If your computer is not a member of our Active Directory, Windows will ask for your user name and password when you try to connect to the print server. Enter gwdg\<​YOUR_GWDG_ACCOUNT>​ as user name (e.g.: gwdg\unolte) and your password. Klick on "​Remember my password"​. Otherwise the printer you have just installed will not work after your next login.
