    multiple print drivers one printer and port

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to set things up so that I have two printers (icons) under 'settings' 'printers' that are actually the same physical printer on the same printer port say server1printer1 and yet use different print drivers for each ex. pcl and ps...? Apparently it can be done but noone seems to remember how...

    Thanx and cheers,
    ~Mike S.

    well isn't that... I figured it out via trial and error... sorry everybody.

    In case you're wondering it's very simple, you just have to make sure that you add provide/name a port ID that's unique. After that it's all pie.
