My only printer configuration is this:

(setq ps-printer-name "//beryllium/HP LaserJet 4100 Series")

If I go to Control Panel -> Printers, right-click on my printer and go to
Properties, and click on the Sharing tab, the thing I set for printer name
is what appears in the "shared as" box.  File->Postscript Print Buffer works
for me.  You may want to try using forward slashes instead of escaped
backslashes and see if that makes any difference.

Also, you should probably use setq instead of set-variable (which is, I
think, just intended to be called interactively), but I can't think why that
would cause your problem.
