DOS printing windows 2008
Posted on 2009-02-12
We've just installed a server with Windows 2008 Terminal Server for a customer.
The customer is using a dos application (which runs fine) and has to print documents to a LPT port.
We've shared the printer did a net use lpt3 \\server\printer and succesfully could give a dir > lpt3 as administrator.
Here's the problem we cannot get a user to print to lpt3. The error message is Access Denied.
We've created a new user (copy from admin) and also the error message is Access Denied.
We've tried this in a Terminal Session, Workstation and Server. Administrator always can print, a user always get's the error access denied.
For the record, the user can print to the windows printer the problem only exists when we are trying to do a net use lpt3 command. The user is able to disconnect and connect lpt3 to a printer. There's no error and when we use net use you see that lpt3 is connect.
We also have tried lpt1, 2, 5 and 7.
