Printing from DOS on an XP Machine

By arichart ·
I am having problems with an XP machine trying to print from DOS. The printer is a (shared) Mannesmann Tally on a 2K server. For some reason, it will print fine in some instances, but loses communication when trying to print other types of documents from the same DOS program. Any help is greatly appreciated!

net use command fixes a lot of those issues.
net use lpt1: \\servername\printersharename

The first ansewer provides the preferred method. Since it didn't work, go to the command line and type: print/d:\\printserver\sharenamedrive:\path\filename.

If you're still having a problem see KB314073 for troubleshooting tips.
