Works ok. Though the name "1234567890" is in the list (a very long list BTW).

Does not work. I believe the reason is that the printer is not in the state 
required by this command (as I explained in other messages).

There are several problems with this code. All printers are not networked for 
example. I am using W2k, not XP however.

I do not think any sys admin is in order here - there is nothing I can do about 
that. The printers works ok, but not in this way.
