Are you actually running DOS or are you using the command line in Windows?  They are not the same.
Can you give us some more details into what you are trying to do. This is listed in DOS, but is this a dos script running in another operating system? Some more information would be helpful. :)

"I pulled this from another forum."
If Network Connections are fine, are you using the same login <username> that you always used. Ensure you are not accessing the same printer from somwhere else!
If you receive "Error 67", this means the number of simultaneous network users has been exceeded. If concurrent users have not been exceeded and you still receive "Error -67", the user may not have the required rights.

The exact definition of Error 67
67 43h "Network name not found"
Check if lpt1 is in use type
net use LPT1
if you get system error 67 then its available, if it's in use you will need to run.
net use LPT1: /d
