How an NT Domain administrator can find out which Workstation has what default printer configured on it. Assuming there are hundred workstations within a Domain and there are  10 networked printers. Also assuming all workstations have fixed IP addresses.
Scenario: If you want to find out whether IP address "blah blah" has default printer "LaserJet 4" or "Lexmark" or whatever? How can you accomplish that?

No Way.  I don't think you can know which is the default printer.
Anyway wait for some expert opinion.

It is not an exellent answer but if you have good handling with registry, got Multi Reg and Explore Registry of your Workstation across your network.  Here the key you have to see :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/PRINTER
