If you access the printer through a server (i.e., you send the print
job to machine B which actually sends the print job to the printer)
that changes everything. At the point you get to choose a printer
don't do that. Instead of going to the list of printers just identify
it as a Postscript printer and it should print. That is what we had to
do. If we didn't we had the same problem you had.
