I'm try to print from a DOS application that is configured to print to LTP1. My local printer is connected to a USB port, plus I have access to a network printer. Any ideas as to how to reassign LTP1 so it can print to one of my printers?

Thanks in advanve for your help!

I have read the numerous request for this problem and have also attermpted to use the directions in the link furnished. However, I'm not real network savvy. When I type in the following at the Command prompt I get:

C:\net use lpt1:\mycomputer\LexmarkX /persistent:yes
System error 67 has occured.

The network name could not be found.

I have tried renaming the printer, which, again is connected to my PC via a USB port, with no success. I have a feeling the next question/comment I will get is to find out the real network printer's name. But I have looked at all the properties and can confirm that I am using the correct printer name. Thanks for your patients, as I see others have had the same problem, and I wanted to find the answer through their experience versus my own.

Rednosebob,

if you are sure the printer name is correct, then maybe the PC name isn't.

Correct syntax: NET USE LPT1: \\Computer\Printer
(Please note that there are TWO backslashes before "Computer")

To find your Pc name try to run: ECHO %USERDOMAIN%

If you want to give a look at a powerful utility to make the redirection and
to add some interesting features like print preview, font selection, color,
graphical background merging and so on, then try Printfil.
