  1. How do I configure a printer which is mapped using the Net Use command


    I have a printer which is mapped using the command below:

    net use LPT5: \\smbserver\printer3 /persistent:yes


    If I issue a print or copy command, the file is sent to the printer and I see it in the output queue on the remote computer.


    However, i do not see the printer in printers and scanners which I didn't actually expect to. Does anyone know to add this printer so I can print from Windows applications?


    I have tried adding a local printer and creating LPT5 which completes, but when I press the Print Test Page, the document leaves the workstation queue but doesn't print anywhere.


    Any feedback is appreciated.

    :)

    • Go to the location C:\Windows\System32\spool\Printers, and delete faulty printer files.

  3. Setting Default Printer via Startup Script

    This looks like a good solution, and similar to some of the VB scripts I tried.. but it is a logon script. I would need something that works as a startup script. We are not mapping printers to users as they move around too much, but rather mapping to each computer.

    The Link that W1ZZARD posted is good information. Sadly however, I have tried utilizing most of the commands that are available. The /c command is indeed interesting, but we are trying to map them when a computer starts up (prior to logon screen) versus just mapping them remotely. The purpose would be if we had a lab that needed the default printer changed, sure we could just send the remote command to each machine, or even remote into them ourselves and manually do it, but I was looking for a smoother alternative.

    It seems like its just something that will have to be done manually and with user education.

    Thanks for all the suggestions though.
