Network Printing from DOS Applications in
Windows NT and 2000
Model Name:
ARNC1D, ARNC3D, ARNC5J
Overview:
Description:
This bulletin describes how to use the NET utility to capture print data from a
DOS application to output to a shared network print device.  This utility can
only be used from a DOS prompt and therefore requires some knowledge of
using command line utilities.  In the procedure listed below, the commands
that you type in are shown in 
Courier BOLD
.  The computer responses
are show in Courier only (not bold).
The USE option of the NET utility, connects a computer to a shared resource
or disconnects a computer from a shared resource.  When used without
options, it lists the computer's connections.
The syntax of this command is:
NET USE [devicename] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password]]
[/USER:[domainname\]username] [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]
NET USE [devicename] [password]] [/HOME]
NET USE [devicename] [/DELETE]
The meaning of the parameters is as listed below.  For those not conversant
with DOS command line utilities, the use of the square bracket above
indicates an optional parameter and is not actually used when entering the
command.

devicename
Assigns a name to connect to the resource or specifies the device to be disconnected.
There are two kinds of devicenames: disk drives (D: through Z:) and printers (LPT1:
through LPT3:).  Type an asterisk instead of a specific devicename to assign the next
available devicename.
\\computername
Is the name of the computer controlling the shared resource.  If the computername
contains blank characters, enclose the double backslash (\\) and the computername in
quotation marks (" ").  The computername may be from 1 to 15 characters long.
\sharename
Is the network name of the shared resource.
\volume
Specifies a NetWare volume on the server.  You must have Client Services for Netware
(Windows NT Workstations) or Gateway Service for Netware (Windows NT Server)
installed and running to connect to NetWare servers.
password
Is the password needed to access the shared resource.  For added security, enter an
asterisk in place of the password.  This will produce a prompt for the password which is
not then displayed when typed in at the password prompt.
/USER
Specifies a different username with which the connection is made.
domainname
Specifies another domain.  If domain is omitted, the current logged on domain is used.
username
Specifies the username with which to logon.
/HOME
Connects a user to their home directory.
/DELETE
Cancels a network connection and removes the connection from the list of persistent
connections.
/PERSISTENT
Controls the use of persistent network connections.  The default is the setting used last.
YES
Saves connections as they are made, and restores them at next logon.  Use the
/DELETE switch to remove persistent connections.
NO
Does not save the connection being made.

To create a redirection, use the NET USE command in the form below:
C:\>
net use lpt2: \\Mercury\AR205
The command completed successfully
This command re-directs any print sent to the computer's LPT2 port, to the printer with a sharename
of "AR205" which is controlled through the computer called "Mercury".  It is assumed that a printer is
not physically connected to port LPT2 on your computer.  If it does have a printer on LPT2 then
setting up LPT2 redirection will route all print output from the local printer to the network printer.
Removing redirection will stop this routing and the local printer will work again.
To display the redirections on your computer use the NET USE command without any parameters, as
shown below.  The computer responses will differ depending on the connections made.
C:\>
net use
New connections will be remembered.

The command completed successfully.
The first line of the output tells you that NET USE is currently set to remember changes you make to
the configuration (/Persistent is set to YES).  This is usually necessary, as you don't want to make the
changes each time the PC is re-booted.  Changing this setting is explained below.
The output also shows that this computer's H: drive is in fact the Shared Data folder on the computer
named \\Jupiter.  Although this can be set using the NET USE utility, it is easier and more likely to
have been set using the "Map Network Drive" setting in Network Neighborhood or Windows Explorer.
The "Disconnected" label shows that that computer is not currently available on the network.
Also shown is the computer's LPT2 port which has just been created and the LPT3 port which is re-
directed to a printer with the sharename of "AR407" which is also controlled by the computer
"Mercury".  The OK label shows that last time the computer tried to access ports LPT2 and LPT3 it
was successful (it does not necessarily mean that they are OK right now).
To disconnect port LPT3 from the network printer the command is used with the /delete option:
C:\>
net use LPT3: /delete
LPT3 was deleted successfully.
Now display the redirections once again, with NET USE:
C:\>
net use
New connections will be remembered.

Notice that port LPT3 is no longer re-directed.  You can only tell this by noting that LPT3 (like LPT1)
does not appear in the redirection list.
To test whether redirection is successful, use the COPY command to copy from the screen (CON,
short for Console) to the printer port (in this case LPT2) as follows:
C:\>
copy con: lpt2:
Mary had a little hippopotamus ^L^Z
1 file(s) copied.
The message "1 file(s) copied" means you were successful.  Note that ^L means Ctrl-L (press and
hold the Ctrl key; press and release the L key; release the Ctrl key), and ^Z means Ctrl-Z.  Do not
type the ^ character!  You should get one sheet of paper with "Mary had a little hippopotamus" printed
on it.  While you are experimenting, you may want to monitor the print queue for the redirected printer
so you can watch what is happening.
If redirection is not successful (and you have no local LPT2 print capability) you'll get this message:
C:\>
copy con: lpt2:
Mary had a little hippopotamus ^L^Z
The system cannot find the file specified.
0 file(s) copied.
If you're not sure what computers are accessible to you on the network you can use the NET VIEW
command:
C:\>
net view
