How can I enable Internet Printing under Microsoft IIS?

The Internet Printing feature isn’t a default component of IIS. To enable it, you must install it as follows:

1. Start the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel applet (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs).
2. Double-click the Add/Remove Windows Components button.
3. Select Application Server and click Details.
4. Select Internet Information Services (IIS) and click Details.
5. Ensure that the “Internet Printing” check box is selected.
6. Click OK to close all dialog boxes.

After you’ve installed the Internet Printing feature, users can use the http:///printers URL to view and connect to the printers on the node. Users with the correct access permissions can also control certain printing actions.

  1. Nice site 🙂

  2. I’m trying to follow these instructions:

    1. Go into control panel – Add/Remove Programs.
    2. Select Windows Components and then Application Server.
    3. Turn on both COM and DTC access.

    But the Application Server doesn’t seem to be there in the windows components list, does anyone have any ideas?

  3. Never mind, fixed it now.
