Mapping printers with Net Use RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm attempting to modify our existing login script (which uses Net Use to map network drives) to map the printers in our office.
    In using the command :

    net use LPTx: \\servername\printer /persistent:yes
    pause  (just to see if it completes sucessfully)

    The batch seems to run fine, I don't get an error, but the printer does not show up under Devices and Printers. Also, is there a way to use the command without assigning it an LPT port? There are quite a number of printers in the office.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks! (and I did try searching, but my search terms: mapping printers, net use, etc - did not bring up anything, sorry if this is a repeat)
