Add network printer through batch script.

I am running a Novell network, the person before me decided to use Iprint and has screwed a lot of stuff up.

I used to have a batch script that I could run to add printers, but I have lost it.

Can anyone help me with loading a network printer through batch.

I have around 100 computers to re-add the printer.

Thanks in advance.

    I do believe I have it done...

    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /b "LaserJet Test" /x /n "n switch not used" /if /f

    %windir%\inf\ntprint.inf /r "IP_10.31.20.8" /m "Ballman HP Laserjet 4200"

    The script added the printer to my Printer folder, fingers crossed it works.

    Use con2prt, which is in the resource kit.
    con2prt.exe /cd [URL="file://\\server\printer"]\\server\printer[/URL]
    

    c = connect d = default. I would suggest a batch script that copies the exe to the PC's system32 folder and then uses PS exec to install the printer.
