The AddPrinterConnection method adds a network printer to an MS-DOS printer port, such as LPT1.
To add a remote Windows-based printer connection, use the AddWindowsPrinterConnection method.


' Connect a network printer to LPT1.

Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
objNetwork.AddPrinterConnection "LPT1", "\\Server\Print1"
