Depends on the model, but most include that information on their test page. HP printers that are network-capable definitely do. You should also be able to see it using the printer console.

Go into the I/O management screen on the menu and get the IP address if its static. If not, get the host name and ping that.Most IP printers also have a web interface.

yes the test print page is the best idea. for future reference, see if any of your server network cards came with network management software (check the CD). they basically have utility in them that pings each device in an ip range and returns the device name. you usually can tell it's an hp print server by that name. helps you map your network and keep track of ip addresses. you can write a batch file to do it yourself. or google "network view' to find and download a trial version that will help you find your printer ip address. you can always reset the print server to force it back to it's default configuration...

GFI ( has a great freeware (for non-commercial use) tool called LANGuard. Run a scan from it on your subnet and it will not only tell you the IP of each device, it'll also scan each device for everything from open ports to patches applied and/or missing. It's a wonderful tool!
