Also refer to the below link for installing a printer on the network-

All the computers will need the drivers for the printer to work according to their operating system installed that is a computer which has Windows 7 32-bit installed will need drivers for same operating system for Epson R2880 printer to work with it and so on.

You may refer to the below link to download the drivers and install them according to the operating system used and for the printer type -
