This question is kind-of a follow up to Q_21177397  (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_21177397.html)

I've got a script now that can install and assign the printer to a valid port.  Now my question is:  How do I identify where the server has designated the client's lpt1: port? (TSxxx)

Is there a standard variable that holds that value once the session is established?  how would I read it?

And I'll 25 bonus point the answer if someone can tell me:  in the command line, how can I keep that pop-up from microsoft that announces an unsigned driver from appearing??  I have a script that installs an unsigned, but working driver - I don't need that popping up every time a user logs in.

You folks are the best - thanks for the assistance!

'how can I keep that pop-up from microsoft that announces an unsigned driver from appearing?? '

In System control panel applet, select the Hardware tab.
Press the "Driver Signing" button.

In the "File Signature Verifcation" box
select "Ignore-Install All Files, Regardless of Signature".
