I have an HP Laserjet 2100TN printer. I need to redirect LPT1 to this printer.

I have another printer on a print server and have successfully been able to redirect LPT1 to it using this command line:


I cannot figure out what to use in place of "\\PSD64404\P1" for the HPLJ 2100TN.

Any help would be appreciated.

My computer name is KES45, so the following batch file line redirects it to LPT1 for printing from the command line in Windows XP:
