Shared printing

We have a setup at our business where have a print server at our front desk to run a reciept printer (because our front desk computer had no parallel port) there is also a brother laser printer connected to the front desk computer for printing off tax receipts, reports and other documents. Since we set up the print server though, the laser printer has been printing 76 mm strips of full page documents. Is there anything i can do to fix it so that the receipt printer only prints the 76 mm format and the laser prints only the 8x11 format?
Thanks

Normally you would set that up using the driver software for which ever printer you want to make adjustments to.
