    net use on w2kpro with netware server.

    Locked

    by thadd.jenkins ·

    We use an accoutning program that is based in a dos box. When I issue the command of net use to redirect my lpt1 to the network printer it will lock up the program. Does any one know what I am doing wrong? I use this syntax. net use lpt1: \\netware server\printsever\printer queue.

      As far as I know, NET USE is _not_ a command supported by the NW client.
      For disk ‘shares’ NW uses MAP, for printerqueues it uses the
      CAPTURE (and ENDCAP) commands.

      If you’re using the Microsoft client for NW instead of the Novell one it mightbe slightly different, but still the nw commands (in DOS box) seem more reliable than MS-syntax…

      Hope this helps,

      Assume you are using a Netware client. try this command.

      capture q=queue_name L=1 ti=10 nb nf

      do this from your z drive
      q=your full context of queue
      L= your lpt port number
      nb= no banner
      nf= no form feed

      hope this help

        Thanks for the advice. I tried this and it did redirect the queue but it still would not work. We did find a soultion to it. We are getting the upgarde to the program next month. Thanks for the help.

      assuming you have gateway services for netware installed on your w2k server the net use command should be – net use lpt1: \\printsever\printer

      hope this helps
