Net Use LPT1: wants a password

By Sooz ·
I have a script running at logon to map lpt1 to a shared printer on the network. Each time the user logs in there is an incorrect password error and hence the printer is not mapped. I have checked all active directory settings and permissions and can't find anything abnormal. Any ideas??

I've encountered similar problems which I was able to resolve by making the user a PC administrator when setting up the NET USE command to map the shared network printer to the LPT port. I've recently had particular issues with LPT1, so I've avoided it by using LPT2, LPT3. Hopefully someone can explain what may be going on.

Thank you...that seems to be it. Seems odd that you'd have to be a local admin to use a mapped printer, but it worked.
