Search items on network

  Wrinkles 22:02 06 Jun 03

I am trying to find a programe that will search for and identify objects/hardware on a network.
Something similar to "MS active directory" as included in win 2000 server.
I am running win 2000 pro on a 750 AMD 256Mb ram. as part of a small network (+ 4 x pentium II Pc's) with various other items.

I am trying to install an old print server which has put me in a catch 22 situation in that to set it up I need to see it on the network but in order to see it on the network I need to set it up.

If you understand that lot then you probably have the answer to my problem.

can you not download the printer server driver/software from the makers site - I had to do this for an old hp server for a friend - once installed no further problems

Hi Howard
tried that but it doesn't do the biz.
I have to upload the settings to make it work in windows, It is setup for Netware, In order to do this I have to be able to see it on the network. To see it I have to upload etc.
I am not very conversant with network protocols etc so I'm floundering here
