First, let me describe my setup then my question: I have Advanced 2K server with a local hp printer installed. I also have this server connected to a 5 port linksys router.

I also have a laptop which has no access to this server however, I would like to print from my laptop to the local printer attached to the server. Is there a way to accomplish this without having to add the laptop to the active directory of the server. Currrently, the laptop is attached to a port on the linksys for internet access.

You don't need to be in the active directory to use the printer - you just need permissions. You also do not need to use IP.

Try going to Start>Run and type

\\servername\printername and see what happens (printername is the printer's share name, under printer Properties)

BTW, when you said the printer is installed as a local printer to the server, I assumed you meant a parallel or USB connection. Depending on the printer model, it is possible that the server is connected to a "local" printer via the network.

In that case, your PC can connect direct to the printer, also as a "local" printer, by creating a "Standard TCP/IP Port" under the Ports tab in Printer Properties.

Let me know what the connection type is, and whether you need more help creating the port.
