NT 4.0 PRINTING TO KYOCERA P3050 PROBLEMS

Hi,
We have a testing system in our water testing lab that has an old nt 4.0 system to run the data collection software. This testing system only works with an nt box. Recently we upgraded our printer that the nt prints to and after trying to connect to the printer via network we had to install a parallel port onto the Kyocera P3050 printer and we can now print our data results and graphs. We have gotten a basic HP Laserjet driver to work with the Kyocera ... almost. The font is printing larger than we would like and there is no way to set auto tray switching. If someone has any suggestions on where to start finding drivers/solutions that might help solve these problems it would be greatly appreciated ...

the best you can do start to replace the nt 4.0 system and your data collection software, today you have printing and driver issues, what if tomorrow the nt 4.0 system dies ?
if this is absolutely not possible for whatever reasons you could try to install a print to pdf driver on your nt system and print the pdf files on a modern OS

Problem is solved:

I tried a postscript driver and it worked. The font is actually a little smaller than what we were shooting for.
