  • con2prt I made my tool but....

    OK, I use Hyena, along with the pstools (psexec) to run some batch files on our networks.
    Network one = 10.37.###.###
    Network two = 10.36.###.###
    OK, I run psexec and some custom tools in hyena I made to do things like, change ip's, install programs, kill serices, install vnc and such...
    well, we got a slew of new xerox printers and I needed to set up users on the .37 network, I am on the .36 network.
    For some reason, I can succesfully add the printers to our pc's on the .36 network,(with con2prt.exe) but NOT on the .37 me the error, can't find printer, please check...blah blah...
    I don't understand...I create a batch file and put it on the pc's on the .37 network and run it from the pc, and it works.
    I know I have the batch file/syntax correct because I can add it to the pc's on the .36 network from hyena/command w/ psexec....BUT NOT on the .37 network.
    Anybody have a clue. This is mind boggling...

    Is the error due to the computer being unable to find the printer (or the server for the printer). If so, when in doubt, try using an tcp/ip address instead of the netbios or dns server name.

    Also, we just released Hyena v4.3, which includes some integration with a new free tool that might help you in installing VNC remotely.

      I have a tool I made that installs vnc, thx, I have the new release...awesome
      I have tried ip address. Some it works, others it does not. Our DNS has never been right...thx for the reply
