    You should be fine.

    Can *other* operating systems print to your Win2k server via IP? If so,
    then the Macintosh can.

    The only "trick" is to <gasp!> follow the instructions for printing via
    IP.

    The only way for OS9 clients to print via IP (via lpr, actually) is
    through desktop printers. You have to have desktop printing set up, and
    you have to use the Desktop Printer Utility to define the printer. Set
    the PPD, then configure the IP address and queue name that you're
    printing to, then save the printer. It will then appear in your Print
    dialog box in a drop-down list.

    It will also appear in the desktop printer menu up in the top right
    corner of your screen (a great thing to have), and in your control
    strip's printer list.

    ND-

    Where I work there is a server address and a printer queue address, that is
    entered into one of the Desktop Printer Utility windows. The Windows machines
    use an address something like //servername/queuename. In the Desktop Printer
    Utility, servername and queuename are entered separately in two blocks.

    I'm not sure how you would print to the server's IP address, since one machine
    can serve many printers. Perhaps there is a port designation for each printer,
    but otherwise it is most likely not possible.

    What I did was to either print using AppleTalk or print to the PRINTER's IP
    address. That worked a lot better than going through the server, and most of
    the HP printers have a built-in print server that can coordinate multiple print
    jobs.

    This stopped working when the printer managers turned off AppleTalk and set up
    the printers to only allow IP access by the server.

    Yes. Look here to see an example of how to set it up:

    To get the printer info I needed to set up the desktop printer, I just
    went to the print dialog on an XP machine, and the printer IP and path
    were listed right in the dialog box.
