Remote network printing

I manage two NT networks which are connected via routers and frame relay. On the remote network, I have set up a printer connected to an Intel Inbusiness print server. Computers on the remote network can print to this printer. My question is: how can I print to the remote network printer?

I can ping the print server, but that's all. I can see the remote domain when I double click on the Network neighbourhood icon, but I can't see any of the available resources there.

On the remote network where the printer is installed, right click on the printer and choose properties from the drop down menu.  Click on the security tab and then add the user from location by choosing add a user and then pick the domain.  You will need a trusted network setup.
NetBEUI protocol is not routable.  Thus, you can browse the resources on the other side unless you have WINS configured.
Back to your question. If you can ping the IP address of the remote printer, you can configure IP printing on your WinNT or W2K desktop.
