    How do i add network printer on remote workstation? When I right click on "add new printer" I see "Add Printer Wizard" window,
    but "network printer" option is disabled (grey coloured) Where my mistake?

    I don't think that you can. When working with a remote computer, you can only add a printer to that computer which you can then share, etc. and give other users access to that printer. The Network Printer option is used to attach/connect/map an existing printer to the computer. But that would make the printer only available locally.

    This wizard is Microsoft's wizard, but I believe that this is how it works. I think that when you use it remotely, you have to think differently about what it is doing.

      I had to do this last week. I actually wrote a bat file to do it, but have not yet made it into a "custom" tool in hyena , YET!
      Should be easy enough to do.
      Good luck
