So I am currently doing the virtual lab CompTIA IT Fundamentals+, Manage Operating System Tools, and I believe there were some steps skipped, or something wasn't completely right.
In the first exercise called Install and Configure Printers, we have to add and share a printer, and connect to that shared printer. For this we are using PLABDM01 and PLABWIN01. So, these are the issues I've encountered.
After I added the printer in PLABDM01 as requested, I am supposed to connect with this printer through the PLABWIN01 virtual lab. However, when typing the link provided in the lab, \plabdm01\printer1, there is no connection possible with the shared printer. The virtual labs shows an image of a succesful connection, but this isn't the case on my end.
I was able to solve this issue by manually connecting to PLABDM01 through the "Browse" function, and then typing the credentials to connect to PLABDM01 first. After I connected to PLABDM01, I was able to add Printer1 to the PLABWIN01 virtual enviroment. My point is, these steps aren't mentioned in the virtual lab guidance. Could you please perhaps take a look at this? Or maybe I did something wrong, and misunderstood the lab completely. Anyway. I am feeling a bit confused right now., and I hope to get some explanation from you.
Thanks in advance.
