When I do that, I get command successfully completed but when I try to
print it comes up with an error saying it can't send to the port.

I also tried right clicking on the printer in "network neighborhood" and
clicking connect. It says there is no driver, I point it to the driver
and it says it's not compatible with the printer, even though it's the
same driver I use installed locally.

I don't get it.

Any more ideas?
