    At minimum, I'd want you to use the DNS name for the printer - that makes it possible to change the IP at some time in the future without having to revisit every laptop.

    It also means you lose any kind of queue control on the printer - if 2 people try to print at the same time then one will lose and there's no nice tidy way of queuing jobs for later.

    You've also got no way of charging users - the job is going straight to the printer and bypassing any quota software etc.

    If none of those things is an issue then it's a good way to work :-)

    he never said it was a issue , Hence my Reply.

    but make sure you give the printer a static address as they tend not to update the DNS when they get a new DHCP address
