    Trying to set this bitch to print via IP. It doesn't have a JetDirect card, however it does have a Troy Group Xjet IV+ card. Which according to every manual should be picked up by Jet Admin.

    Jet Admin doesn't pick it up and I also managed to get Xadmin32 from TroyXCD but this will not pick the printer up either. Installed the IPX compatible protocol for win2k...no go...even installed newest novell client.

    Still cannot detect via IPX, IP, or even the damn MAC address.

    I know the card and printer are good, they worked 2 days ago on another computer of the same specs...what could be wrong?

    Are you connecting it directly to your computer's ethernet card, or through a hub? If it's directly to the computer, you'll need a crossover cable.
