I have heard that there are various free tcpip printer drivers
available for Windows 95. Could someone please refer me to a web page / ftp site where I can download the driver(s).
Also any advice about configuring a win95 pc to print over
a tcpip network would be appreciated.

Thanks, Steven Goacher.

ACScomm - thanx for trying.... but the desired utility wasn't there.

I need something that permits a Windows 95 pc to perform
tcpip network printing. This facility is built into Windows NT4, but
not my operating system, Windows 95.

Thanx Duckers.... this seems to be what I need,

I went to the web page after doing a hotbot search.

I won't be testing it until I go into work...
hopefully it will do the job.
