It's been a while since I used Netware, but this used to be the drill: You simply print to LPT1. But first you redirect LPT1 to a Netware print queue with the Capture.exe: capture /q=AccountsLaser Will redirect future print to the printer(s) attached to the spool queue AccountsLaser . Your Netware bods can tell you what queues exist. To get back to the locally attached printers: Endcap (And yes, I do remember writing standard Epson escape codes to make printers do things. I'm glad I don't today). --Colin.
