Found the answers to my problem -- first turned on print sharing in Windows. Then "net view" gives the server and "net view servername" gives the printer. Then installed EMacro
& now everything works beautifully.

EMacro is a very clever piece of software. Quite cool.

Thanks -- the help I got was all I needed, that and about 3 hours.

Okay. Using the lpr.exe from C:\WINNT\system32 I can print from MSDOS.

Issuing "lpr -S -P HP_LaserJet_6L -d test" prints my test file. How could I translate that to the necessary .emacs file entries?

Please assist further if possible.

When I try "net view" I get "RICHARD-LGFRTR7" and no associated printers when typing "net view RICHARD_LGFRTR7". But when I look in the properties page for the printer control panel the port name is FR114P_P1 and the device address is

Have tried the following and also have substituted "RICHARD-LGFRTR7" to no effect:

(setq lpr-command "")
(setq printer-name "FR114P_P1")
(setq ps-lpr-command "")
(setq ps-printer-name "FR114P_P1")

Also, the description of "net use" in the emacs manual is for a shared printer connected to another computer. My printer is hooked up to a NetGear FR114P Gateway/Router & not directly to another PC.

I have no idea how to print directly from DOS with this setup & have tried a number of things.

Thanks again.

(setq lpr-command "lpr")

Do you really have a program on your machine called `lpr.exe'?  If
not, the above is wrong.

(setq printer-name "//FR114P_P1/HP_LaserJet_6L")

Does this name work if you use it from the DOS box's command line?  If
not, you will probably need to use "net use" to redirect one of the
LPRn ports to this printer, as described in the Emacs manual (in the
node "MS-DOS Printing").
