    When in XP SP2 I go to a CMD prompt and I try to copy a file to the UNC Printer Share on the directrly attached printer on LPT1 and I get "access is denied" error message. But if I copy the file to the >LPT1 port it works fine.

    The EPSON LX-300 dot matix printer is directly attached to a XP SP2 pc via a parrallel cable LPT1. It is also shared. \\OST-Recp\Receipt
    It works fine when connected to a XP SP1 pc so I'm assuming it's a SP2 issue.

    When I type this at a command prompt
    copy test.txt \\ost-recp\receipt I get access is denied

    When I type this at a command prompt
    copy test.txt >LPT1 it works fine.

    Regards
