Hi,

I've got a bit of a dilema.

I'm trying to setup user's profile to map their network printer when they login.

Now the problem is that my printers have spaces in their names: Eg: HP 2600n, Samsung 2000, HP LJ 2500 etc.

Can I still use the below syntax in my login script?

AdPrintX.exe /cd "\\MySvr\PrinterName"

Also can this syntax be used for printers on an IP port or only on LPT1?

Should work - as long as you have it in quotes...

AdPrintX.exe /cd "\\MySvr\Printer Name"
