Configure to print directly to printer

By jhpjr1 ·
I want to know how to set up my ibm thinkpad running Xp Pro so I can print directly to a printer without having to have an access code to the LAN which I believe the HP 9000dn is connected to. I've seen it done with Win 2000 Pro?

as long as you have access rights to use the printer, you can print to it. it also depend on your network setup, if you are working in a workgroup or domain environment, as long as proper access rights has been setup, you are fine.
remember, the owner of the printer can share the printer and assign users to that printer.

If the printer has an IP address you can print directly to it.
Find out what the IP address is
Open add Printers wizard.
Double-click Add Printer, and then click Next.
Click Local printer, clear the Automatically detect my printer check box, and then click Next.
Click Create a new port, and then click Standard TCP/IP Port.
Click Next to run the Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port wizard. If it asks for more information for the NIC choose jetdirect
Follow the instructions on the screen to finish installing the TCP/IP printer.

(I copied most of these instructions from windows help while in the printers folder)
