hello
I have a Dell 3000 printer that died, I replaced with the same model. It's a shared network printer from my W2k3 server. I believe all I have to do is give the new printer the same IP as the old, and the queue will pick it up, is that correct?

thanks in advance.

Depends on the port you are using.
If it is a standard TCP/IP port, (RAW or LPR) then it should work straight away.
If it is a proprietary network port, it may need the printer's name to be the same. (This can usually be changed using the web interface on most network printers)
