Can't Print DOS App from RDP



Have a user connecting to our W2K Terminal Server using
Remote Desktop. I watch his printer created and watch
windows print jobs come and go out of the queue just
fine. However, when printing from a dos app, we see
nothing pop into the queue.

I've even created a batch file mapping the drives to the
users' printer....

net use lpt1 /delete
net use lpt1: \\servername\sharedprintername

I then placed this batch file in the users startup
directory so upon logging in it would execute.

When I run it from a DOS prompt, it tells me the command
completed successfully.

The user is coming in thru a VPN tunnel and port 3389 is
opened and Window's print jobs print fine.

Desperately need some help!:(
