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:

NET USE LPT1 \\PSD64404\P1 /PERSISTENT:YES

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

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I figured it out. What confused me was that I was used to being able redirect a printer attached to a print server WITHOUT first sharing it. That obviously is not the case with the HP Laserjet 2100TN. So, I shared the printer as HP2100TN. My computer name is KES45, so the following batch file line redirects it to LPT1 for printing from the command line in Windows XP:

NET USE LPT1 \\KES45\HP2100TN /PERSISTENT:YES
