SUMMARY: Can't get Solaris to print to NT

Surprisingly, didn't get too many replies on this subject. Maybe I haven't
waited long enough.
Anyway, Don Krause's response had the answer:

"Did you remember to install the lpr print services on the NT box? Using the
standard NT Netbios Printer Share name means nothing the the Sun box. The
lpr service for NT emulates a UNIX print spool on the NT box."

Armed with this information I opened up the 'services' window on the NT
machine and started the 'TCP/IP print server' service. Now I can print
from the Sun box to the NT box.

Thanks to all who replied.
