How do I print from Foxpro to network printer?

I have DOS-based FoxPro running on an XP SP3 PC.  From FoxPro I can print to a networked Lexmark T634 printer but not to a networked Kyocera KM C3225E printer.  I'm using net use lpt1:  \\server\printer to redirect output.  The Lexmark is using a Postscript driver so I tried installing a Postscript driver for the Kyocera but that didn't work.  When I print to the Kyocera, I can see the output being spooled but then it disappears before being printed.  Any suggestions for getting ths to work?

Did you try to print from another DOS application? Did you try to print from Windows directly?

You may use another redirection software, e.g. http://www.dos2usb.com/index.htm and more such utilities exist.

Yes, I tried printing directly from the DOS prompt to the Kyocera and that doesn't work.  Printing from Word to the Kyocera does work.

Thank you for the link, I will try that utility.  I don't understand, though, why FoxPro can print to the Lexmark but not the Kyocera.

Let say FoxPro is a little bit more sensitive to printer driver reliability.
