The story so far
I have recently purchased a FRITZ!Box fon WLAN 7170 router. This device
supports printing using the 'raw' print spooling mechanism, on port 9100.
No printer port driver exists on OS/2 or eCS to support this 'protocol', if
you can call it that. We do have named pipes though, so I decided it could
not be too hard to simply spool the data from a named pipe to the ip
address of the router. This actually works brilliantly!
