A. If you connect directly to a network print queue, you can't set defaults for items such as duplex printing. To work around this limitation, you can create a local device that points to the network printer, then create a local print queue by performing the following steps:
- From a command prompt, type
NET USE LPT1: \\<printer server>\<printer> /persistent:yesto map the local LPT device to the network printer.
- Add a local printer in the usual way (go to Start, Settings, Printers, and click Add Printer).
- Specify a local device (LPT1), and configure the new printer.
