try adding the printer in the pc using a standart tcp/ip port point to the ip address of the machines. this should work at least for the infotec printers. note that if the machines dont have a static ip addres, that is, if the address changes you wont be able to print anymore.
if promtet for adapter type most infotec are: NRG Network Printer C model

need a little more information:
what kind of network are you on?
are you using DHCP or static ip addresses?
what kind of printers are they?
are these printers using built-in networking or being shared from another computer?
are you using an administrator level account on your machine?

looking forward to your reply...

do the printers have a static ip?
if you cannot assign a static ip, you can set the HP printers up to use the LAN HW address, listed on the
second page "EIO 2 - Jetdirect Page" of the configuration printout (different models have this info on different pages... just look for it).  with this address you can print to a printer regardless of its ip
address.  but you *have* to use HP's "point and print" driver bundle to work.  the infotec printers i dont know about, sorry...

so are you connecting to each printer via a windows share?
something like this:
\\192.168.1.20\sharedprinter

do your accounts on each machine have a matching account on the print server?
that is exact same name and password?
if not, the print server *has* to have a matching account for every computer/user that needs to print to any of the printers managed by this print server.
