Sun solaris printing to tcp/ip Nt box

I have a HP5Si connected to an Nt Server. I installed the tcp/ip printingon the Nt server and created the lpr port.
On my Sun Solaris box I use the following statment to try printing:
lpr -P IPAddress:Name -s filename
This prints the header fine, class & job name, but none of the text of the file.
Can I or How do I print from a Sun Solaris box using lpsched to a Nt printer?

You made need to make a registry change on the NT system.  The following is the steps needed to make this change.  You can also find this at www.ntfaq.com.  1) Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
2) Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LPDSVC\Parameters
3)  From the Edit menu select New - DWORD value
4)  Enter a name of SimulatePassThrough and press Enter
5)  Double click the new value and set to 1. Click OK
