Map Com Port to a Terminal on MS Terminal Server 2003

I have an MS Terminal Server 2003 and a Wyse WimTerm. I am trying to map COM1.  
I get the following results:
c:\NET USE COM1 \\<ServerName>\Com1
Systmem error 67 has occures.

The network name cannot be found.

What am I doing wrong?

If you are trying to connect a device to COM1 on the Wyse Thin Client during a TS session, you should be able to do so by checking the serial ports option under, options/local resources, on the remote desktop client, before connecting.

Do you mean 'System Setup -> Serial' on the Wyse Terminal?
There are only settings for Com Port # and speeds

I haven't worked with a Wyse terminal, but from the sound of things you don't have a configurable connection client. Does it boot directly to the Terminal Server session? If so, my recomendation will not work. Most often you have a connection client in which you eneter your user name an pasword. This client also has a few configurable options such as user experience (resolution, sound, etc.) and attached devices. This allows for mapping local hardware to remote sessions.

When I use change port, I get the following listed:

Aux=\Dos\Devices\Com1
com1 = \Device\RdpDrPort\;Com1:9\tsclient\com1
com2 = \Device\RdpDrPort\;Com1:9\tsclient\com2
com3 = \Device\RdpDrPort\;Com1:9\tsclient\com3
com4 = \Device\RdpDrPort\;Com1:9\tsclient\com4

Am I missing something in the setup to use Com1?

Afraid I don't know. Your configuration is different than I am accustomed to. One thing to keep in mind if trying to map from the terminal server is that connections have virtual or dynamic port configurations. Though it may work while connected, establishing a new connection, after a new logon, may require changing the configuration.
