Net Use on a Printer that keeps disconnecting...
Posted on 1999-07-13
I have setup a printer with LPR on a Windows NT 4.0 server and it works just fine. That server is not a PDC or a BDC. If I do a Net Use command on the windows NT server, I see all the drives that are mapped and the printers that are connected. In order for my Cobol shell application to work properly, I must do the command net use \\ turbo\okidata, then the printer becomes Connected when doing a simple Net Use.
The problem I have is that this printer becomes disconnected, without having done anything. I tried to map a LPT3 with the same path just to get a persistent connection, but still. net use LPT3 \\ Turbo\Okidata /persistent:yes Even with this command, it keeps disconnecting.
Any ideas ?
