Go to Spool Administration(SPAD)

On Output devices,Click on display

Go to change mode and create a new output device

In Device Attributes tab:

Give device type as SWIN: windows Printing via sappld

Give device class Standard Printer

Model : <b>Ex:hp laserjet 1020</b>

Location: IP address (On which system printer is located)

In Access Method tab:

In Host Spool Access Method select F: Printing on Front End Computer

Host printer : __DEFAULT

And save it.

After creating this give this output device to user in defaults who want to access the printer.

Select output immediately and delete output request.

<b><i>Login to that system to which printer is connected and connect the printer to the required system.</i>
