Printer: How to Install a Printer Driver Remotely

How to Install a Printer Driver Remotely

by Ruri Ranbe, Demand Media
Business administrators can use the "printui.exe" command in Windows to install and manage printing devices on all of the workstations in an office. You can run the command in the CMD window to install a printer driver to a local or a remote computer.
Step 1Sign on to the remote machine. Click Start and then enter "command" into the search field.
Step 2Point to "Command Prompt." Press "Ctrl-Shift-Enter" to launch the application with administrative rights.
Step 3Execute the command "hostname" (minus the quotes) to find the name of the computer.
Step 4Sign on to the local computer. Open Command Prompt following the same instructions as above.
Step 5Enter the following command into Command Prompt:
printui.exe /if /c\\[Hostname] /m "[Model]" /f "[INF]" /r "[Port]
Step 6Replace "[Hostname]" with the name of the remote computer, "[Model]" with the exact name of the printer, "[INF]" with the full file path linking to the INF driver and "[Port]" with the connection through which the printer connects.
The following command, for example, installs to a remote computer "MyPC" the USB printer KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 1600W:
printui.exe /if /c\\MyPC /m "KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 1600W" /f "C:\Users\Me\Driver.Inf" /r "USB001"
Step 7Press "Enter" to execute the command and install the driver file to the remote computer.

  • Use "USB001" as the port if the printer is connected to the remote computer via universal serial bus; otherwise, use "IP_0.0.0.0" and replace the zeros with the IP address of the network device.

OS Browser: Cannot connect to the real secure.xxxxx.com


When I try to connect to https website I get this error message from Google Chrome and IE browser. 

Cannot connect to the real secure.indeed.com

Something is currently interfering with your secure connection to secure.indeed.com.
Try to reload this page in a few minutes or after switching to a new network. If you have recently connected to a new Wi-Fi network, finish logging in before reloading.

If you were to visit secure.indeed.com right now, you might share private information with an attacker. To protect your privacy, Chrome will not load the page until it can establish a secure connection to the real secure.indeed.com.

Chrome and IE uses windows certification and since my computer has windows xp OS in year 2014 so it did have some kind of certification problem.

Use Mozilla Firefox because it does not use windows certification and hence it does not show this error message.
