    Capturing LPT1 (2002)

    Has anyone had success capturing LPT1 for printing to a network printer. MS web site had some command line method I have not been able to make work.

    All the time! The syntax is:

    NET USE LPT1 servershared_printer_name

    So, if the printer server was PRTSRV1 and the printer's name was HP1200, it would be:

    NET USE LPT1 PRTSRV1HP1200
    -Mark
