Jason, you mentioned a work around setting up the printer to be networked. Is not the chance that it is a GDI printer rather high and that it will not work because of this?

There is no such thing as a GDI printer. GDI is a Windows API for drawing graphics. Printers take text or binary commands over a wire. Setting up the printer through the network solves the problem that USB ports do not have real character devices assigned to them by default.
