You simply need to share your printer through the Sharing preferences on the host computer and, if you're using an early version of Windows 2000 or less, install the Epson printer drivers with the included CD. The printer will automatically appear in the Shared Printers area of print dialogs.

You can find the IP address of the printer (this should be displayed in the router). On one of the PCs from which you're trying to print, navigate to Start > Run (Search in Vista) and type: cmd. At the command prompt, type ping <IP address> and hit enter (e.g. if your printers IP address is 192.168.1.99, you'd type ping 192.168.1.99). The ping should come back and tell you how long it took to reach the printer. If the PC can't reach the printer it will time out. To close the window, type exit.

Re: How to find epson printer ip address

You need to assign an IP address to it, that is valid on your network. Is there a manual?

Usually you can set the IP using software from Epson that scans the network for the card and lets you configure it: http://support.epson.com/webadvice/wa0177.html

Otherwise there should be away to do it using the buttons on the printer-- if it is fancy enough to have a display and so on.

The IP address is actually in the printer server card.
