I manage a network with two network printers. I simply want to know the difference between these two mode of installing these printers, and implications if any:

1. first i install the printer driver on all my systems. and then use the driver to connect with the printer IP address.

2. I installed the printer driver on only one system, the share it, I then use ADD printer icon on other systems to search and connect to the printer

YOUR DEVICE AND YOUR PRINTER ARE NOT CONNECTED
ALL THE SETTINGS YOU ENTERED ARE VALID.
FIREWALL IS NOT INTERFERING WITH YOUR INSTALLATION

Now I understand the game, it was Kaspersky that was blocking the installation. when I disabled the kaspersky antivirus it worked.

When you use the second method Windows is supposed to copy the correct driver over when it adds the printer, but I have found this doesn't always work particularly when the versions of Windows are different. I tend to take your first approach and install the correct driver on every PC

The second approach tends to be easier to install but the print server PC would be a single point of failure. The first approach is more robust whenever the availability of the print server can not be always ensured but also a bit harder to manage in terms of printer configuration.

Still we use the first method in our campus most the of the time.
