Print to Postscript fixed IP PC printer

I have 2 identical Lexmark printers with fixed IP's (different IP's obviously) on a 10/100 BaseT LAN. Using the Laserwriter 8 in the chooser (OS 9.1) I can see one of the printers. Any chance of seeking/mounting printers by IP? Any ideas on how I can see the other one? (I tried shutting one of them off so I could see the other one, but no luck).

The Laser Writer 8 driver does not provide for connecting to an IP. However by using the Apple Printer Utility and the Desktop Printer Utility you can. Both pretty straight forward and simple apps.

All this means if the Appletalk (sometimes called EtherTalk) has been turned on on one of your Lexmarks. If you turn Appletalk on you should see it in the chooser. ALternatively you can use the desktop printer util to create an LPR to desktop printer queue and print over IP. My experience is that using IP to print from Mac is not very reliable, so YMMV, as they say.
