Managing NT4 printer with Win2k Pro
If you are using NT 4.0 server to manage your printer and you have Windows 2000 Professional as
a client, you lose the printer connection when you log off.
The Microsoft solution is to re-install each time you logon. The following batch file placed in
your Startup folder is a more viable solution as it re-connects the printer each time you logon
without any user intervention.
net use "NTSERVER" "Printer Name" Username /user:password
net use wo281117proom225 guest /user:guest
