Printing from Windows95 on SCO Merge to a remote Windows95 printer

Printing from Windows95 on SCO Merge to a remote Windows95 printer

Problem:
How is possible to print from a Win95 session (or Word, Excel) running
on OpenServer 5.0.4p with Merge 4.0 to a printer attached to a Windows95
machine?

I tried the following:

-share the printer Brother HL-8 attached to the Win95 machine

-from the command line:

/usr/vision/visionfs/bin/visionfs print
//Win95_station_name/printer_shared_name

and the printer works.

-define a printer in Merge with the following configuration file:

attachtype=spooler
failureaction=warn
printercommand=/usr/vision/visionfs/bin/visionfs print
//Win95_station_name/printer_shared_name

command:
mrgadmin printer add pj:path_to_the_file:"long name of the printer"

-add a printer Brother HL-8 under Winodws95 on Merge:

type Brother HL-8 (as the remote printer is)
port: pj

Could anybody give me a suggestion?
