Scanning for printers on remote host

I was wondering how I can get a list of the printers attached to LPD on a remote host.
I know Windoze can do this when you enter an IP address of a print server it gives you
a list of the printers available on it, and asks which one you want to add.
How can I do this on FreeBSD? I have a 3 port ethernet printserver and I don't know what
the ports are called in the LPD on it.
