Win95 / VLM's / More than 3 LPT ports?

Hi,

I'm playing around with Netware VLM's and Windows95.

In the net.cfg you can set LOCAL PRINTERS = 9 / NETWORK PRINTERS = 9 and under Windows 3.1x you simply add the LPT ports (4-9) in the win.ini to have windows recgonise them.

Does anyone know how to do this under Windows95? I changed the win.ini but windows95 still only knows about LPT1-3

Any help/comments/suggestions appreciated.

Cheers,

It is possible to do 9 lpt ports with client 32 for Win95 from Novell, why don't you try it?

Let me know,

Henrie.

If you don't like client32 try the folllowing:

(The Microsoft Client for NetWare Networks is limited to three NetWare printer redirections)

Connect to the NetWare printer by specifying a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path to the printer, rather than capturing the LPT4 port.
eg. \\servername\queuename

NOTE: This workaround prevents MS-DOS-based programs from printing to the network printer. MS-DOS-based programs require that you capture a printer port.

Hope this helps.
