JSI Tip 0138 - How do I print to a non-NT printer share?

If the TCP/IP printing service is not installed, install it via
Control Panel/Network/ Services/TCPIPprinting/Add/MicrosoftTCPIPPrinting.

After the reboot, choose Start Menu/Printer/AddPrinter/MyComputer/AddPort/LPRPort. Add the ShareName or IP address of the remote printer.
