A network interface card card (poking fun at the title )

print a config page from the printer through the menus on it to see the IP address. If no IP is printed then you need to setup a dhcp/bootp server. Once you know the IP just make sure you can communicate with it then telnet to it or connect to it via web browser then you can change the Ip and the rest of the settings.

Are you using cups?
Configure cups to use a AppSocket/HP JetDirect and then enter the IP address of the printer ( example socket://10.11.12.13:9100).

My post tells how to set the IP if you don't know it. If you already do know the IP then setup cups as michaelk said,

michaelk how do I configure cups on a remote box, when I try I get a 403, if I try localhost:631 its fine on my machine, its when I want to hit the page on my server.

You will need to change the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to allow access on your local network.
