To capture a Networked Printer to an LPT Port on W2K or XP, do the following:

1. Share your local Printer (it can be a USB printer)..
then open a Command Prompt Window and type:

NET USE LPT1: \\computerName\PrinterSharedName

2. Exit the Command Prompt window…

3. Open your other application (in my case, it was a DOS app)
Now print to LPT1.
