TCP/IP Printing from an outside domain? ;)

  I have been looking for a way to do TCP/IP printing through win95 from outside the local domain. I have found an "mpage" program for Linux and have got it to work fine but have been wondering if there is a simular process for win95. I do have the IP address for the printer(s) and for security purposes I know that they do not require a password to reach them. Is there any way to follow sute for win95?

Thanks

Sounds like your trying to use LPR/LPD to print to a print server
from a Win95 machine.  I'm not fimiliar with "mpage" but I have and use a product called "Cisco TCP/IP Suite 100" it works great
supports NFS, LPR/LPD and stream printing /w GUI.  This is client side software for win95.  Keep in mind that if your printing across routers the print server will need proper Gateway info to get back to your machine. I believe you can find a reference to "Multinet 100" on the Cisco Web site.
Hope this helps
