How to find IP address of printer

WinnaDixie asked 3 years ago

Hi there,

I'm trying to set up remote printing from a wireless Mac mini box to print to a hardwired printer on Windows OS Vista. The system (It's a Mac) is asking for the IP address of the printer. My question is how to go about isolating what that particular IP address might be. I know my IP, but each attached device should have its own, I'm thinking.

Thank you in advance if you can answer where I go from here. 🙂

the IP of the printer = the IP of the vista machine (which sounds like its acting as the print server)

just beware that the IP might change, you can consider setting it static, or using the hostname instead
