In Windows NT, if you attempt to connect to a shared printer attached to a print server with a Computer Name of 13 characters or more using the following command:

   NET USE <devicename> <\\computername\sharename>

where <devicename> is the port to be redirected and <\\computername\sharename> is the network name for the printing device,

the following error message will appear:

System error 67 has occurred.

The network name cannot be found.


To connect to the share, you must use the Windows NT Print Manager or change the Computer Name of the print server to be less than or equal to 12 characters.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.1 and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
