I am not familiar with the P2050. If it supports IPP it should work. It's possible that IPP is disabled. Have a look through the front panel menu, or point your browser at it's IP address and see if IPP shows up anywhere.

I have unsucessfully tried with http://IP_ADDRESS/ipp.  We do have Kyocera printer set up over a IPP connection and address it like this:  http://IP_ADDRESS:631/printers/lp1 and it works.

However doesnt work with our HP printer (P2050)

Thanks AnthonyRusso, but printeranywhere seems to ask for two PC's, one on each side.  We would like to have the printer directly addressed from the LAN w/o a PC in between.
