    I install it as a network printer on the server and then share it like a regular printer. You can then deploy the printers by OU's.

    Why would you do it any other way?

    I saw that. We're not allowed to use vbs. I was hoping for a windows native scripting answer. :hs:

    Scripting the the printer install is simple once the port exists. This is the only roadblock I'm running into.
