Server can't find printer that's connected to a printer server

I'm setting up a small client/server network and I don't know how to "find" a printer that is hooked up to a printer server. Using Win2k.

The DP-301 manual, etc. is on D-Link’s FTP server at ftp://ftp.dlink.com/printservers/dp301/.

“2 Introduction
The DP-301 offers extraordinary flexibility, operating with all major
network operating systems and protocols:
¨ IPX/SPX
Novell NetWare 3.x, 4.x (Using either bindery emulation or native NDS)
¨ TCP/IP
UNIX lpr/lpd (HP-UX, SunOS, Solaris, SCO, UnixWare, IBM AIX)
Windows NT
¨ NetBEUI
Windows NT, Windows 95, Windows for Workgroups, Microsoft LAN
Manager, IBM LAN Server
¨ AppleTalk
MacOS EtherTalk”

Lpr_100.exe is also available at the FTP link. DLPR.doc, LPR for Windows 95 TCP/IP Printing User’s Guide, is included in the file (double-click it to expand it). It explains how setup Windows and how to find a printer on the print server. Larry
