I am looking to add printers using AD and group policy. The problem is that the printers are not set up on a print server. They are set up as local printers using TCP/IP ports on each computer. The computers have the drivers installed as other printers currently on the machine, but i need to add another printer. I am on a Server 2003 network and all users us Windows XP.
