Printing from Dos in XP to a Network Printer
Posted on 2006-07-13
I have TCP/IP Printers with network card built into them on my network. I have XP Pro boxes running a DOS program that only prints to LPT ports.
Now I did setup mappings using NET USE, BUT they don't stay connected. its like the disconnect if you don't use them and I need them to stay connected.
Then the biggest problem on top of it is the 3 Laptops the go to sleep and disconnect all the drives including the wireless connection.
When I bring the laptops out of sleep mode and wait a minute or so then drop to dos and type in net use my printers show up disconnected.
Anyone know what I can do or if I'm doing something wrong?
Or maybe software that would take care of this issue?
