Printing to shared 98 printer in RealWorld via NET USE LPT6

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

Here is the setup:

RealWorld (Great Plains) 8.0 running on a mixed XP-Pro/98 enviroment.
Shared HP LaserJet 2100 on a 98 Machine
LPT6 mapped using NET USE from XP machine to print to shared 98 printer

When RealWorld tried to output the print job to LPT6 on any XP machine, we
get NOTHING... but on the 98 machines, it prints to the shared printer/LPT6
with no problem.

Any thoughts?

David
