    NT 4 Commands help

    quick question: I need the NT 4 commands to map a network drive, and send a file to a network printer. Its for an tedious series of tasks I need to automate with a batch file, I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

    to connect to a network drive

    net use x: \\computername\sharename

    add the /persistant flag to make it "permanent"... meaning it will still be there after reboot
    x can be replace by any drive letter available

    to delete that drive mapping

    net use x: /delete

    to print (not sure if it works or not, never used it)

    net print

    use

    net use /?
    net print /?

    for all the options

    type

    net

    for all the net commands

    Just a minor correction, it has to be net use x: instead of net use x. I just tested it and x didn't work but x: did. Same goes for deleting it. Peace

    I was looking at the output for net print /? and I don't think you can send a file to the printer from the command line, at least not with what it gives you from the /? command.
    You may want to look into the lpr command: lpr /?
    I just tried it and apparently the printer or server or whatever has to be running the ldp service, whatever that is. I'm still searching though, so I could find your solution.
    You may want to look into this program: http://home.swipnet.se/~w-62144/prfile/descr.htm
    It looks to be able to print to a network printer from the command line. Good luck.

    h3r3tic: thanks for the correction.

    I wasn't sure about the net print command as I've never used it. I don't have a network printer right here to test it on. I should have said that when I posted.

    Either way, thanks for the correction. I typed that out so quickly and I didn't test it...

    Misinformation is one of the things I hate most... and thats exaclty what I did.

    I just made a file called help.rtf then I did this command at the command prompt:
    print /D:\\server\printer c:\path\to\file\help.rtf
    and it printed only it didn't print it correct, that is probably because of the type of file or encoding. You can fool around with that for a while.

    edit
    it worked just fine if I saved the file as help and selected "Text Document - MS-DOS Format" for the file format.
