Another potential solution to printing PostScript files comes
with many network software packages in the form of a "print file"
utility. At my last employer we used Sun's PC-NFS network
software (aka Solarnet), and this package included an application
called LPR QuickPrint which would send any arbitrary file to any
network printer. I used this all the time to print proof copies
of PostScript files on a networked HP LaserJet 4 printer before
emailing the files to our print service house for volume
production on a Xerox Docutech system.
> The solution = Instead of printing the file to your PostScript
> printer, try to copy it with the DOS command COPY. If e.g. your
> file is c:\mydir\myfile.eps and your postscript printer is
> connected to LPT1:, use the DOS command
> COPY c:\mydir\myfile.eps LPT1:
> The printer will then print the file.
