KVM Printer Connection?

#1

Hey all, new day new problem.

I am having an issue with the Windows VM on KVM using Virt-Manager not being able to find a network printer.

Any ideas of what I can do?

Presumably your Windows VM has no issue going to web or other network resources?

My immediate thought is with the network setup of KVM. Are you using a bridge network connection or are you masquerading?

It’s the KVM Default in Virt-Manager “default NAT”.

Yes, I can go online and also connect to the NAS, however the network address for the NAS needs my password everytime I turn on the Windows VM…

Thank you for your help, I put it in Bridge mode and it found the printer right away.
