This I understand:
net use P: \\SOME_COMPUTER\SOME_SHARE net use P: \\220.127.116.11\SOME_SHARE
(the second argument is a logical share on the given computer)
This, I do NOT understand:
net use LPT2: IP_18.104.22.168
(where IP_22.214.171.124 is the name of a "port" assigned to a printer; the IP is a valid and responding device, but the full string "IP_126.96.36.199" is not)
Can anyone tell me, is there ever a syntax of NET USE that could operate on a printer port like that? I can't get it to work, can't find anything via Google, and am practically in tears.
