Printing scenario

By demion ·
I have got a Novell server and 4 Windows 98 clients. The clients run a DOS application from the Novell server and one of them have a printer attached to it. I run the application from a batch file that maps lpt1 to the printer server. When I attemptto print from a client running the application, a print job of 0KB appears on the printer queue of the Windows 98 client which has the printer locally, and that's all. Is there an idea to manipulate this?
Thanks in advance

Did you run NPRINTER from the client who got the printer attached?

The other way of doing this, to make your life easier, is to install an HP JetDirect External. You attach the printer to it and setup the JetDirect as a Queue mode. Then you can forget about it.
