I want print to the above printer function of this copier.  The TCP/IP portion works.  It has a IP and using Netspot from cannon I can connect and even print a testprint.  But the drivers don't work in win98 to print to this ip.  Is there a way to just add a IP as a printer port just like the HP Jet Direct Ports can be added.  I've tried everythin I can think of.

Win9x doesnt support TCP/IP printing without third party software. I got a LPR client bundled for 9x when i bought my Dlink printserver.

NT has TCP/IP (LPR) printing as default.

Didn't fix the problem but it's a start.
