    Sending files to Print directly via IP address

    Hi,
    We are having a problem with one printer and its windows queue. I would like to be able to print directly to it using a DOS prompt and send to it using its IP address. The data we are sending will be understood by the printer because it will mostly be raw HPGL files created by AutoCad and being sent to an HP Plotter.

    We cannot work out the DOS syntax (it has been TOOOOO long) to get this to work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Jon

    You could also look at DOSPRN, with its fascinatingly (and approximately) translated instructions. You will find it uses the ancient DOS utility PRN2FILE.COM (from 1991, it says).
    But be warned that it deletes your print file without warning...
    So make a copy first.
    I didn't...
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...
