netware-like print ques in win2k server



I am forced to migrate from Netware 6 to win2k 2000. I
still use several legacy DOS programs that expect to see
print queues on the network in order to find network
printers. Is there any way to have Netware-like print
queues in the win2k server environment? Example:
WordPerfect for DOS Ver. 6.1. Buy the way, I have used up
lpt1, lpt2, and lpt3 with net use for another DOS program
that needs print queues.

Almost all programs should allow you to print via lptx ports - I'm surprised
the WP6.1 for DOS does not - although I guess it was a Novell product at the

If it really won't - you can install FPNW on the w2k server(s) to get them to
emulate NetWare bindery based print queues

FPNW is part of the SFN suite - link below
