I had difficulty when our Powers-That-Be switched our LAN printing protocols
to tcp/ip.  The solution was to direct ps printing through GhostScript.
This is what I have in my .emacs:

;; Use GhostScript to PostScript print files
(setenv "GS_LIB" "c:\\gs\\gs7.00;c:\\gs\\fonts")
(setq ps-lpr-command "c:/gs/gs7.00/bin/gswin32c")
(setq ps-lpr-switches '("-q" "-dNOPAUSE" "-dBATCH" "-sDEVICE=mswinpr2"))
(setq ps-printer-name t)

Obviously, you would have to adjust this to point to the specifics of
wherever GhostScript is located, but it works for me.
