Adding network Printers using a Batch file
Asked Aug 19, 2009, 08:04 AM
Im hoping this is in the correct category.
I have created a batch file to add network printers to many computers, this is the example
Cscript prnport.vbs -a -r IP_192.168.2.56 -h 192.168.2.56
Cscript prnmngr.vbs -a -p "Printer1" -m "Panasonic DP-4182" -r "IP_192.168.2.56"
It runs perfectly, BUT I have a problem if this port(Recommended printer port) does not exist on the machine it will not install the printer.
Any idea how to create a batch file that does this. Basically I need a batch file/ or a asp.net/VB code to install a printer on many machines WITH or WITHOUT the ports being available.
Hope this makes sense. Please can someone help.
