Would like to be able to remotely install new IP printers to desktops and also update printer drivers to existing installed printers.
Printers are installed locally not shared.
Remotely:
- show currently installed printers
- update drivers on installed printers
- install new printers

You can still use the Print Management console to install printers on workstations, even if they aren't going to share the printers.  All you need to do is add the workstation to the Print Management console on the admin workstation and manage it from there.  However, the physical connection of the printer to the workstation may still be an issue, but there's really no way around that.
