Are they all JetDirects? If so, you can ftp to any JetDirect and "put" a
file directly on their print queue -- no password necessary...

Subject: [TriLUG] printing directly to IPP from Linux
I have a printer listening on ports 631/ipp, 515/printer, and
I am running knoppix 3.6 on my work laptop.
I would like to print DIRECTLY to the printer (i.e. no setting up CUPS, no
defining a queue anywhere (hopefully), etc).
I read the lp man page and tried this, but it failed:
echo "a bunch of mindless crap" | lp -h 192.168.10.242
(where the IP Address is the address of the HP printer).
LP barfs and says: "lp - error -scheduler not responding!"
Any ideas on any way to print directly to this printer?
I am trying to send a "Dear user - we need to know the location of this
printer, blah blah blah" to about 100 "lost" printers and I'd rather not set
up a queue for each one. Plain, unformatted ASCII text is okay (that means
"we" did our due diligence in this case and we can move on if they choose
not to call us back).
