Adding a printer via a batch file to a network printer but not on a print Server

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Architecture does not currently support a Print Server at this time, so what im looking for is a simply desktop batch file that will add a printer using the rundll32 printui.dll......etc command line.  this commands opens up the wizard, but im trying to find a way that it will include creating a Standard TCP/IP port and adding the hostname or IP address and printer type.  is this possible. Would help me tremendously.  Thanks
