DOS printing with Terminal Services:

When I use Remote Desktop with terminal services Windows 2003 and use the "Net use lpt1" I share the printer.
The printing out of my DOS based program works great.
HOWEVER, when I go to another computer and use Remote Desktop with terminal services and use the "Net use lpt1" with a different printer ALL computers print to the new location. The printing follows the last used "NET USE" command.

The problem is listed for windows 2000 and the hotfix provided. But I am facing the problem in windows 2003 sp2 installed.. Also as expected the win2000 fix doesnot install on win2003 server.

Kindly help....

I have solved the problem... For the benefit of all here's the solution.  You need to disable the LPT1 port in System -device manager. Only than the proper mapping is done within the session for each user.
