I need to print a text file with a computer using a printer shared on a network.

I tried print /d:\\softailcustom\clp610 invoice.txt

When it's on the machine with the printer it works, but when it's on another machine it doesn't even though the same computer will print using windows printing.

I get "unable to initialize device" error
