is there anyway (preferably from the command line i.e. DOS) to be able to take a printer offline or online under windows XP?
I have a number of scripts which currently set the firewall level, with offline and with exceptions being used only at home and everything being locked down on untrusted networks.
The printer is called "EPSON Stylus C82 Series (WiFi)", and windows treats it as a local printer although it is networked via LPD on my Belkin print server.
Ideally i would like the solution to work for proper networked printers as well (IPP/Cups and Samba/Windows) so i can use a simaler script at work.
(OS is Windows XP-SP2)
