Use DOS 486 for print server?

By 4sommers ·
Somewhere I heard it's possible that an old DOS 486 PC can be configured to be a simple print server on a Windows network. How can this be done? (If it makes any difference, the printer is an HP Laserjet II).

Use DOS 486 for print server?

What ou need to do, is to Network your 486 in DOS, than find DOS drivers for your printer.
I suggest puting enough ram (32), Win95 and share your printer from there.
It is that way allowing buffering and spools.

Win95 a , does not need more than 8 B ram to work, the rest will go towards networking.

Hope this helps.
