Print by IP, not printer name?

Using FileMaker 12.0v3 as a point of sale application, directs print jobs to printer by name.

Problem is can't add a 2nd printer with the same name on a Windows LAN.

Wondering if there is a way to script it to point to printer IP address by computer rather than name?

That would allow multiple printers for the same function.

 

Product and version FileMaker Pro 12.0v3

OS and version WIn7 Pro

Hardware Dell Optiplex 2030, Dell B2360dn printer
