    but if you want to put it as a network printer then.....

    This method is recommended for departments.

    You should obtain a static IP address for your printer at
    Once an address has been assigned, you will need to modify the configuration of
    your printer to use this new IP address. How this is done varies from printer
    to printer. You should work with your department's
    computing support office
    to configure your printer on the network.

    This process also assumes you have the drivers for the printer, either on CD
    or downloaded from the Web.

    To set a Windows XP/Vista computer to print directly to a
    printer, follow the steps below:

    1. Click Start, then Printers and Faxes
      (Windows XP) or Windows icon, Control
      Panel, Hardware and Sound, then
      Printer (Windows Vista). Double-click Add a
      to start the "Add Printer Wizard," then click

    2. You will be given an option between Local Printer and
      Network Printer. Select Local Printer. Make
      sure the Automatically detect and install my plug and play
      is not selected (Windows XP), then click
      Next. Select Create a new port in the
      Type field, then select Standard TCP/IP Port.
      Click Next (twice in Windows XP).

    3. In the Printer Name or IP Address field, enter the
      Domain (host) name of the printer (e.g., which you received from the
      Hostmaster in response to your request for a fixed IP address. Click
      Next, then Finish.

    4. If you are placed back in the Select the Printer Port window, make sure
      that Use the following port is selected. From the list, select
      the Standard TCP/IP Port you just created. It should appear at
      the bottom of the list. Click Next.

    5. Select the manufacturer and printer model, or select Have
      if you are going to install the drivers from a CD or have
      installed them from the Web. Click Next.

    6. In the Name field, enter the name that
      will identify your printer on your computer. Specify whether you want this
      printer to be the default printer. Click Next. Select
      Do not share printer, then click
      Next twice. Click Finish. The printer
      should now be accessible from your computer.
