printer port setup

Does anybody know how to add a printer from network in Solaris 10 using IP settings? according to our IT support, in order to add this printer in Windows XP we introduce it as a local printer which is connected to a port with an IP address, like 128.79.44.110. Anyway I don't know how it can be done through Unix.

Cheers,

if you want the easy way --- edit /etc/printers.conf directly after you read "man printers.conf"

if you want the not so easy way --- see "man lpadmin"

Thanks for your suggestion. However, as I'm new to Unix both are difficult for me. So how I can enter my printer port IP address into printers.conf file?
