If you have a print server then the computers would go through it.  The printers would connect to it.  The IPs on the printers should still be static but you would miss the benefit of the print server if the computers went directly to the printer.

Let me know if you have other questions about this.

By the way, if you need more details then what type of network do you have (i.e. server, number of workstations, etc)?  Also what is the make and model of the print server or what will provide that service?

Did you still have a question or need some help with this?  The way you closed this and the B grade is a little odd.  Let me know what is up and if you still need help then I'll be happy to provide what I can.  It is nice to have a chance to earn the A and, in this case, you never even responded or asked for help.

Thanks for the fun question.
