Re: Unix to win'98 printing

You'll need a remote printing service installed on your Win98 pc, something that will listen for and accept the print requests from the unix host. I've found a Win9x remote printer trial product that's easy to install and setup, ftp://nic.uark.edu/pub/PC/lpd/rpm2295.exe

I'm sure there's gotta be a freeware type product for this floating around somewhere.

-Hope this helps
