I'm attempting to access a network based plotter using the dos 'copy' command.
Here are the steps I've taken:
- rip my images into an RTL file, glue.rtl.
- create a TCP port and assign it to the plotter.
- share the plotter
- in a cmd prompt:
• c:\windows\system32\net.exe use lpt2: "\\Sunburst44\DJ1050C1" [worked]
• copy /b glue.rtl lpt2: [gaves error: "Access is denied."]
I have used this technique successfully on another network on the Win 2000 computer.
The present computer is Win XP.
I am able to plot directly to the shared plotter.
I am using the same admin account for the entire process.
Why is access to the net connection denied?
