Capture printer port in Windows 7 on a non-domain computer
I have a need to print to a networked epson 680 from a dos program.
The computer that needs to print to the printer is on a domain that is managed by another company.
We have a nat setup in our Sonicwall to give the printer an ip address on the third party domain.
We can print test pages, but when trying to print from the program that requires a printer port to be captured, it doesn't work.
We have tried net use lpt1 \\computername\sharename
In the past with xp we would install the printer on our server and then use the net use command to capture the port.
In this case we have to install the printer on the other vendor's computer as standard tcip/ip port.
Is there a way to make this printer work from the dos program?
