Adding Brother MFC-8460N to network

By RoninV ·
I have three of these multifunction Brother printers to add to a company network. Each has been plugged into a network cable at their desired locations and turned on. After logging in to a computer as the administrator, I log into Remote Desktop Connection (Windows 2000 Server). Adding these printers should be as easy as going in Control Panel - Printer and Faxes - Add. (1) Should I be inputting each printer's IP address during installation? (2)We have three office locations. When naming the printer(s), should I not include the office location (domain) in the name, for example (Texas\printer1)? By doing so, that would allow a user to add that printer from her workstation, by simply clicking on that domain during the add printer process? Thanks for helping.

There is into Printer's properties, Sharing a check box that invites you to publish printer in Active Directory or you can add manually a printer in AD. If your printers have got a distinct name and a description, it is easy to find in AD by domain.
