Hi there guys...

I have an old program that can only print to lpt1.
Im trying to map lpt1 to an IP but I could not get that to work... After a
while I decided to just have a computer with the drivers installed sharing
the printer so I could map it using net use. I tried "net use lpt1:
\\server\printer /persistent:yes" and it worked while I was logged in as
admin but when I logged in as a regular user I noticed it was not set so I
tried the command again. It asked me for a username and password, but when I
typed in the admins login and password it told me error 5: access denied
Anyone could help me out? Im pretty lost here! : (
