I have a small network running a workgroup. I need to use Net Use Command to connect to printer and capture LPT port for DOS printing.  Printer is installed and shared on Windows 2000 PC, all connecting workstations are XP Pro. I get System Error 67 has occured, The network Name cannot be found.  I get the same error message on all workstations trying to connect.
I have used all flavours of net use command and switches but nothing seems to work. I can browse the network and see the shared printers. Any Help appreciated

Hi.
The PC in question is a windows 2000 workstation where the printer is installed. There is the where the printer is shared.  There is no firewall running on the 2000 workstation

what about connecting by IP address ?
net use \\x.x.x.x ....
I think the reason of your problem is old netbios which you have activated on machines only for backward compatibility.
