net use permissions problem in logon script

I have 25 users using RDP connections to Terminal Services on my Win2003 Server (Standard Ed.)

I need to map lpt1: to a printer share for a legacy application.

Putting net use in a login .bat file will not work unless the user has admin rights (which I don't want).

Is there any way around this?

TIA

Regards

Graham

Yes. Use a port that is not physically present on your server (LPT2: should do it). Due to the increased security settings in XP and Server 2003, regular users don't have the permission to remap existing ports anymore.

Looks like what I need...

Unfortunately the App is hardcoded to LPT1 so I will need to disable the physical parallel port  so I can net use LPT1

Thanks
