We are looking for a method to preinstall the print drivers on
workstation. Does anyone know what changes and registry entries must be
made to allow iPrint to use the previously installed local drivers?


We have machines that connect over 56kb WAN connections. Our printers
are setup using iPrint Direct. If workstations connect to the iPrint
server webpage to install a local printer the driver install fails with
a winsock timeout error.

We have tested that if an iPrint printer is installed on a machine and
then deleted, the next install will succeed in a very short time as the
iPrint client detects that the driver is already installed and does not
redownload it. However if we just install the driver as a local tcp/ip
printer and then delete the printer, iPrint does not recognize the
driver as being installed.

Thanks for any and all comments and insight.
