Can you normally print with lpr?
did you try: lpr -P//networkshare/printername
i tried: lpr -P//CNZUHPR01 myfile, but got
lpr: printer error: can't open '' for writing: The printer name is invalid.
i am not pretty sure if the printer name is ok. i got the name by
right click the network printer icon in the control panel then select
the 'properties'. i know it's a HP LaserJet-2300DN and accessable to
me via our company's domain.
