Printing from a Dos Box..

I am running SAMBA on Redhat 4.2, and I captured the print share to LPT1

on my Win95 machine.

I don't have any problems printing from a Windows app, but if I print
within a Dos box, I get various messages depending on the program
(access violation,write fault, etc.).

I have double checked that it is captured to an lpt port.

I also tried mapping it to Lpt's 1-3 on two machines.  All with the same


I also tried setting the writable option to yes.

I forgot to mention I am using Samba 1.9.18p4 which I just downloaded
from the Samba web site.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
