Situation: PowerMac 7200 running 7.5.5, HP LaserJet 4M Plus on the Network. I can print from both the Mac and Win95 side accept in one app on the Win95 side. This app (ProDoc) uses ASCII text. PC PrintSpooler should convert to postscript but I just get errors. I've tried different drivers and configurations to no avail. I'm sure its a postscript problem but can't fix it. HELP PLEASE!!

What type of errors do you receive?
From the Windows side or the Mac?
Have you enabled printing from DOS programs (applcations that print ASCII might need this)?

If your trying to print a text file from a dos program on the win95 side, make sure that you install the win-95 driver to allow Dos programs to print to this device. If you are unsure of this setting then goto:

Start --> Settings --> Printers

Click Add Printer, Click NEXT, Select network printer, click NEXT.

On this window, below the BROWSE button is a radio button for the
print from DOS option. If this answer works for you Decline rbr's non-answer and I will repost.
