IP printing for DOS application

By tbearden ·
I need a way to send a text file to an IP printer using a command that will work on the command line for a DOS application.
In the past I've use the copy command and copied the file to the device or the shared printer's name.
EX. copy text.prn \\user1\hplaser
Can I do something similiar to an IP printer?>

Tried to answer this online but it would not accept my answer so I am sending it to you via email. I did something like that. We have mostly ip printer here and one user that has a dos app that print to a file. The file has to be then copied to the printer. The way I did it was to share the ip printer on one users workstation, added the share printer to the dos users printers and copied to that port. Work great for me. Even set up a dos batch file so she could do it for herself. Hope this does it for you.
