Mac Printing to an NT Server with Printer

I have an NT 4.0/SP5 Server, plus a mac connected to the network. I have a printer on LPT1 and would like to have the MAC print to it. TCP/IP is the only protocol we are using plus the mac services and tcpip printing thing. Do I need to set up Zones to get the mac to see the printer?

If you have the newest version of the laserwriter driver, you can setup printers with the desktop printer utility (should be in the apple extras folder)  You can setup the printer using LPR or a couple other ways.  I've only used the lpr option, but maybe there's something else in there that could help.  I think the new laserwriter comes on the os8.5 cd or you can download it from apple's site
good luck
I have the same setup..I need you to check a few things;

1. Have you installed services for macintosh?
2. If so is is print services for macintosh started in your services.
3. Have you made an mac account for this service?
4. Can the other users on the network see the printer?

If you answered no to any of these questions thats where your problem lies..if not give us an update and we'll continue.
