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!:(
