I need to google for something like "what is the default [term] for an hp LJ 4000N on a workgroup?"
Because there is no way these people set this up beyond defaults.

Tap Menu, then move to the right until you see INPUTS or CONFIGURATION.
One of those holds EDIT TCP/IP. Give the printer a static IP (configuring one octet at a time, tapping right after each one), then go to Start - Settings - Printers and make a new HP4000N. Hit "Create New Port" and say that it's a JetDirect port, put in the IP, name the port, and leave those settings at default.
If you're on XP, just make the new printer, hit Create New Port, then TCP/IP Port, then specify the IP. Boom, you're done.
I have to do this a lot at my office, and on four subnets too.

The commandline in question is
net use lpt2: \\computername\printername
See, I have a remote user that connects to a Win2k server for various reasons (this was in place before WinXP Pro was out). Now she wants to be able to print to a printer which is on her LAN. According to these FAQs, you can't do it without tricking RDC into thinking it is a local printer. Apparently this is a security thing.

the term you're looking for is: UNC path (Universal Naming Convention)
