I have three computers and one of them is a print server.  The two other computers are in a remote location.  How do I print to the print server remotely using a static IP address?

does the printer have an ipaddress? if so, you could install a ip-printer port and bypass the server. otherwise, you can install a shared printer the same as you would normally - you need to be able to ping the print server, and you need to be logged in with a user account that has permissions to install the printer.

for more details, what is the O/S of the 3 machines?
also, have you got the sites linked now?

Is the print server a Windows machine?

Are you wanting to do LPR or NETBIOS printing?

If you share out the printer, you can use NETBIOS to print to a static IP.  Just create a new network printer on the other two computers and point them to \\ip_address\printer_share_name.

thanks to the both of you.  I split because the pointing to the network printer portion from worthman was useful.

Phew!
