We use Axis print servers - they come ready to configure via http,
telnet or ftp. I'm not hip on pricing but the cost difference is (for
us) minimal between HP and Axis. IIRC.
The telnet/ftp option is not advertised, but it's dead easy to use.
One option we considered was keeping a 'gold' copy of the config file
and ftp'ing it to the new devices on demand.
