deploy network printer or printer from printserver

  • Has anyone used a script to deploy a network printer? I think it might be easier to use one to deploy a printer installed and sharedon a printserver which would due the trick for me.

    (on arelated note when I search the forums for the word "printer" nothing is returned, which may be true but has anyone else noticed seeming strange/incomplete results when searching the forum regardless of the search?)

  • How about an IPP? Drivers are on shared drive, but I need to create the port and install the printer
