Printing Script Problem with GG Client 9 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
I have a large problem. I'm currently testing GG with a new version of our proprietary software client and I've run into a printing hurdle. At execution, our software client runs a batch script that basically sets a network printer to LPT2 so that a particular program can generate a report at completion. For whatever reason that we can't get around, the printer must print to LPT2 and won't recognize USB or anything else.

Our login code basically checks the computer name against a predefined list computer names and runs the appropriate batch script (e.g. "net use lpt2: \\computername\printer"). Can you see the problem that causes when using Go Global Client? Since the app isn't running on the local machine any more, the script never runs and the clients can't print to LPT2.

How can I get around this in GG without asking our developer to modify the program, thus screwing up the printing of users who access the app on the LAN.

Here's an update:


  • Using latest version of Server and Client

  • Server is running on Windows Server 2003 SP1

  • Client is running Vista Business SP1



To bypass the issue, I manually ran the batch script

Code:

net use lpt2: \\computername\printer_name /persistent:no


And the printer connection was created. However, when I try to print to LPT2 from the program in Go Global, nothing happens. However, when I print to a local printer it works fine.

Does Go-Global support DOS printing?
