Sharing Virtual printer drivers has been completely rewritten in the newest release of the Black Ice printer driver version 16.00.2396. Printer Sharing to network and IPP sharing has been greatly simplified. The user experience and user interface is also more user friendly by providing several self-corrections, configuration warnings, and advanced help during system configuration. If one is using shared printers this is a critical update.

For Print Server applications the new printer sharing provides several critical advantages by simplifying printer sharing, allowing use of the output directory on network drive (UNC path) and includes the unique feature of redirect printing to network shared printers!

This uniquely designed feature of the Black Ice Software Virtual printer driver gives network administrators flexibility, while simplifying print management and printing for all users.

From the print server (Host) Administrators can share out the Black Ice virtual Printer driver to desktop PCs. Also on the Host the Black Ice virtual Printer driver can be configured to redirect client print jobs to Shared network physical printers. On the print server, with a dozen or more printers, each physical printer can be assigned to a unique Black Ice Agent (Task) printer that can be shared out to individual or multiple user(s) (Clients).

To share out Black Ice Virtual Printer takes a few simple steps.
Install the Black Ice Virtual printer driver on the Host.
Configure the Black Ice printer driver on the Host as an Administrator. The Most important configuration is the Output directory for the Client.
Once the printer driver configured and is tested, the printer driver can be shared out to Client systems manually or though group policy.

The Black Ice Printer Drivers can be shared through the IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) using HTTP protocol over Web as easily as sharing printers over the Network. Sharing the Black Ice Printer Drivers through the IPP over the internet provides the same security as sharing printer over the local network.

The current release 16.00.2396 has significantly improvement to share the Black Ice printer driver over IPP. Download the free evaluation version to try it.
