Chapter 5. Network and Printer Objects > Managing Network Printer Connections

Managing Network Printer Connections

The WScript.Network object has methods to manage network printer connections comparable to the methods for managing mapped drives, as shown in Reference List 5.1. Adding and deleting connections to networked printers adds and deletes icons from the current user's Printers folder, so you can use scripts to ensure that your computer's users have the most up-to-date and appropriate set of network printer choices. This is a good task for logon scripts.

In the next few sections, we'll cover the topics of listing, adding, and deleting printer connections. There is also a way to control the redirection of output from DOS programs to network printers—through the mapping of the DOS environment's virtual LPT devices.
