"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not heard of that one before.
It's certainly not an NT networking term.
Maybe UNIX ?

Out of morbid curiousity I had a little surf.
It seems to be related to something called IMS, running on IBM ESA or S390 mainframes.
At a guess, I'd say it was a command that connected a printer so that it could be used (equiv - NET SHARE).
I don't expect anyone here knows much about mainframes, apart from all the OLD people (you know who you are !!).

I only remember the LTERM command in MS Quick Basic years ago. I think it was a string operation to remove all leading space characters in the string. But Quick Basic is not a printer.....
