Indeed. Ever since our friendly IT staff disabled Appletalk on our
corporate LAN, I have to print with this "Soft Print Pack" software and a
serial cable attached to my PC. Which isn't TOO big a deal, but it means I
can't print from any location in the building with an Ethernet jack like I
used to.

I believe the appropriate protocol is "LPR", for which there is
unfortunately no Newton client available. I wish there were....

Or even Appletalk-LPR bridge software.... hmmm...
