    Doesn't matter which driver you pick in the printer definition but I'd go with SAPWIN or SWIN so that the driver installed on your PC is used. Then for access method choose __DEFAULT for hostname and set the USB printer as the default printer on your PC, otherwise you'll need to select it each time in the print dialog. And I'm sure you already knwo that SAPLPD must be isntalled on the PC and that background usage is not possible with frontend printers (oss note 114426).
