Windows server 2008 and LPT printing
Posted on 2013-07-01
I have installed new printers onto a 2008 server (currently they are on a 2003 server) and they all work great from windows.
We also have a dos programme and we currently map printers using net use lpt2 \\servername\printername which is working fine.
I have tried to map this way with the new printer share but originally I got "Access Denied" and upon doing some research I found out I had to give access to the spool folder in server 2008. I can now go into a command prompt and do dir>lpt2 and it will print. However printing from within the dos app is still failing.
Is there anything else I need to do to enable this?
