Still looking for a DOS box that can handle networked printers and drives.

Have anyone found a DOSbox version that will print to networked printers?
I have it accessing networked drives, but the printing is sketchy.

I'd love to find a solution for running legacy 16bit apps in the 32/64 bit Windows 7  maybe 8.1, in full screen mode.

I need to be able to map LPT1 or LPT2 or LPT3 to a printer.
Example:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\net use lpt1: \\LOAN_DEPARTMENT\ML-2550 /persistent:yes > NUL

DosBox megabuild, as I mentioned above allows that to work.
