WOW! what a quick response.   Thanks very very much.  The -I option was the
key.  I had tried it before but with the wrong ip address.  I was using the ip
of the printer as displayed by my NT workstation's printer property page when I
needed to be using the ip of the server which I was able to get from ipconfig.
Thanks again,
