I am trying to setup DOS printing from the cmd prompt and
get prompted for username on a network print share. This
only happens if a non-Admin user logs in.

The print share is on a Win2K server. From the WinXP PC I
issue the 'net use lpt1: \\server\printshare statement.
It immediately prompts me for a username. No matter what
user name I enter, it returns an 'Error 5 Access denied'
message.

Please advise.

A security change in XP prevents a user mapping to a real device. Use LPT2
or LPT3
