Hi again Jay,

Herewith you receive a copy of an earlier question abouth printing.
Have you tried to use the lp <filename> directly from a command prompt?
Otherwise select the Generic PCL5e ljet4 PPD driver file.
This solution do/did work with mine DellLaserPrinter in parallel and as a
network printer driver as well.
