On Win95, you might be better off re-directing one of your local LPTx:
ports using the `NET USE' command. E.g.:
C:\> net use lpt1: \\HP_Network_Printers\(printer_name)
Then you can copy or re-direct data bound for the printer directly to
the LPTx: device. E.g.:
C:\> enscript -2r test.c > lpt1:
C:\> copy test.c lpt1:
depending on whether your printer expects to see PostScript or plain
Hope this helps.
