Can I capture LPT1 to a network printer in W2K?

I'm connecting to a Citrix server and for some reason Citrix will not recognize my network printer. However, If I attach a local printer, it works fine.

So I'm thinking of capturing LPT1 to redirect to my network resource. Can this be done in W2K?

Thanks

Don't forget to stick it in a .bat file and place it in startup.

you can accomplish the same thing with port pooling under the printer's port settings in the printers folder.
