"Free" ones (in every sense of the word) I don't know. Other,
I only know 2: WinLPR Spooler and "ACITS" (whatever that means).
WinLPR Spooler is highly configurable, robust and Shareware.
ACITS I don't know very well, but it is kind of difficult to
debug, as it is hiding its presence very well (while you can always
open a WinLPR window). ACITS is sold by the University of Texas
as a commercial license AFAIK (~ 80.- $US for 1 user, 800.- $US
for 100 users...).
