Minolta Di200 will not print via ethernet network

We have a Minolta Di200 copier/printer which has an ethernet card.  I am having problems getting it to print.  I've tried with Windows XP and Windows 7 and nether seems to be able to print to this device.  I've set it up on the network, I can ping it, I can log in using the printer's web interface but can not print from the same PC's.

The PCL driver used is the one from the Minolta site.  Pi3502_PCL6_Win2KXP_1012.exe and using MLTXL2K.inf.  I added a printer through the Add Printer, Local Printer Attached to this computer, next,  created a new Port, type of port Standard TCP-IP, then entered the IP address, and created a Port name.  When selecting the printer, I used the option of having a disk, then pointed to MLTXL2K.inf that was downloaded from Minolta's site.  Note: I also tried the generic PS driver from the site and no luck.

From the Web interface, I printed out the configuration and it shows the Protocol Address 192.168.1.101, default Gateway: 192.168.1.254, Subnet 255.255.255.0, and finally DNS 0.0.0.0.  Everything is what I would expect except for the DNS address which I am assuming that I really do not need for printing since I have specified the IP address.

Also, the port is configured: PCL, Raw, Port 9100, Generic Network Card.

You need to change the TCP/IP port from raw to LPR and check the box to enable byte counting.
Here is the 3502 NIC manual and the answer is on 3-11: http://kmbs.konicaminolta.us/content/products/attachments/manuals/Pi3502Opsnic.pdf
You also need to use the PCL5E driver.

Worked great.  Thanks.  One bit of information for anyone else.  You also need to specify a print queue.  One thing I found out was when creating the port and setting up the printer make sure that you do not select "Send Print Test".  You need to specify a print queue name and you can not do so if something is already in the print spooler.  If you accidentally send a Print Test, do not worry, simply open the print spooler, cancel the print job, then reopen the Port and enter the LPR Print Queue name that you want to create.
