You need to set up a mapping in the printer control panel, under the
"Properties" window for the printer you want to use:

        1) Set up a TCP/IP port "Standard TCP/IP Port" specifying the
           network address of the printer (Properies->Ports).
        2) Share the printer under a name you choose
           (Properties->Sharing), e.g., "Shared as: HPLaserJet", on
           machine "ALEX".

Then configure printer support in emacs as follows (note the multiple

(let ((printer "\\\\ALEX\\HPLaserJet"))
    (set-variable 'ps-use-face-background nil)
    (setq ps-printer-name printer)
    (setq printer-name printer))

This is for Emacs 21 but should be the same for Emacs 20.  Setting
ps-use-face-background to nil may or not be necessary depending on how
your emacs faces are set up.

If you can't get this to work, there is a more complicated solution
using an external program called "enscript" set up to pass the
PostScript through unchanged, but it should not be necessary.
