Some more information about what you can and cannot do at present would be helpful, but here are some suggestions anyway.

I don't know the Netscreen. However, from looking at the user guide, you should be able to connect a networked printer via one of the RJ45 ports on the front panel. When that is done, add a *local* printer on the PC. When asked for the port, create a new Standard TCP/IP port with the printer's IP address. When asked for the printer model, either select it from the list, or browse to the location of the driver files.

If that does not work, make sure the Netscreen does not block ports 9100 and 515.

If the printers are wireless, the same installation will work - except you don't need a physical connection.

All of this assumes you can ping the printer's address. If you cannot, then you have a more basic problem. If you don't know the printer's address, tell us the model and someone may be able to tell you how to find it (usually from the printer's front panel display).
