Local / IP Printer

by oldbaritone In reply to Easiest way to add printe ...

set it up as a local printer, connected to port "IP" and create a new port on their machine with the local IP address of the printer.

Most printers will not require domain membership; when they send data to it, it will print.

I agree with oldbaritone's approach.

Do you want to automate this process? It could be tricky being non-domain computers. It might be easier just to manually config it (or manually run a script that sets it up) per laptop, depending on the amount of laptops.
