I just looked up this printer and it is network capable in a small network.

To make things simple and to not depend on the 32 client computer to be a print server, you can connect the printer to a switch and when you install the drivers, have it detect the printer through the network.

It may not be the answer your looking for but it will defiantly solve your problem going that way.
