1. How to share a printer or scanner that is connected to one computer

The VCC-300 Cable acts as an Ethernet adapter, enabling a printer or scanner that is connected to one computer to be shared with the other computer that is connected via the VCC-300 Cable. The following is an example of how to share the printer. This demonstration is meant for users who are not familiar with using the computer, so users who are familiar with using the computer may use their preferable method to share the printer.

The following demonstration assumes that a printer is connected to the Main Computer (192.168.2.1), and that the Main Computer is connected to the Sub Computer (192.168.2.2) via the VCC-300 Cable. The objective of this demonstration is for the Sub Computer to be able to use the printer connected to the Main Computer.

[ Main Computer ]
A) In the Main Computer, go to "Control Panel > Printers and Faxes" in order to see the status of the printers connected to the computer. Right-click the printer you wish to share, and select Properties, which will open the Properties window.
B) In the Properties window, select the "Sharing" tab, click "Share this printer", and next to "Share name:" type an adequate name. For instance, if the printer is an HP LaserJet, you may choose "HPLaserJ" as the Share name.
[ Sub Computer ]
A) In the Sub Computer, go to "Control Panel › Printers and Faxes", and double "Add Printer" to start the "Add Printer Wizard". In the "Welcome to the Add Printer Wizard" screen, click "Next".
B) In the "Local or Network Printer" screen, select "A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer", and click "Next".
C) In the "Specify a Printer" screen, select "Connect to this printer (or to browse for a printer, select this option and click Next):", and next to "Name:" you must type "\\Computer_Name\Printer_Share_Name" (you may type the IP instead of the computer name). For example, since the printer we wish to share is connected to the Main Computer (192.168.2.1) and the printer's Share name was set as "HPLaserJ", we may type "\\192.168.2.1\HPLaserJ".
D) You will be prompted with a dialog box asking "You are about to connect to a printer on 192.168.2.1… Would you like to continue?" Select "Yes".
E) In the "Default Printer" screen, you will be asked "Do you want to use this printer as the default printer?" If there is no other printer installed in the Sub Computer, or if you want to use this shared printer as the default printer, select "Yes". If you wish you use another printer already installed in the Sub Computer as the default printer, select "No".
F) In the "Completing the Add Printer Wizard" screen, click "Finish".
By modifying the process a little, users can share other devices such as scanners as well, and printers connected to the Sub Computer may also be shared with the Main Computer.

2. How to use a printer connected to a network, on the Sub Computer that is not connected

to the network

If the Sub Computer is connected to a network, it may directly install the network printer, but in order to use a printer connected to a network, on the Sub Computer that is not connected to the network, the Main Computer must share its Internet connection with the Sub Computer in order to give it access to the network.

After setting the Internet sharing configurations on the Main Computer, go to the Sub Computer's Windows Start > Printers and Faxes, and double-click Add Printer to start the Add Printer Wizard.

In the first screen of the Add Printer Wizard, click "Next", and in the next screen (Local or Network Printer screen), select "A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer", and click "Next". In the following screen (Specify a Printer screen), select "Connect to this printer (…)", and type \\PrinterIP\PrinterName in the field next to "Name". Here, PrinterIP referes to the IP assigned to the printer if the printer has a built-in network card, and if the printer is connected to another computer, it refers to the IP of the computer to which the printer is connected. PrinterName refers to the printer's Share name, and if the Main Computer is using this printer, the Share name is verifiable by checking the printer's Properties.

Users may now use a printer connected to a network, on the Sub Computer.

3. How to share an ODD(CD/DVD device) that is equipped on one computer
The VCC-300 Cable acts as an Ethernet adapter, enabling an ODD device (CD/DVD device) that is equipped on one computer to be shared with the other computer that is connected via the VCC-300 Cable.
Example 1: The following demonstration assumes that a DVD Drive is connected to the Main Computer (192.168.n.1), and that the Main Computer is connected to the Sub Computer (192.168.n.2) via the VCC-300 Cable. The objective of this demonstration is for the Sub Computer to be able to use the DVD drive connected to the Main Computer. Here, n is the setting value of "2. IP Address” in the VCC-300 Manager.
Sharing a DVD equipped on the Main Computer with the Sub Computer
[ Main Computer ]
