I have a networked printer (HP DeskJet 712C) that is shared via a Windows XP host. I'm able to print to the printer from applications such as Word, gVim, and Notepad, but when I try and print to it directly via
print /D:"\\hostname\HP DeskJet 712C" file.txt the shell will respond
the file file.txt is currently being printed, but nothing will go to the printer.
I should add that while I've primarily been doing the printing from Windows 7 hosts, it happens on both Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) and Windows XP hosts.
