You may be able to confirm it yourself, why not try mapping a shared
printer to lpt1 ?
From command prompt:
net use lpt1 \\server\printshare
See what happens. While I've not actually run into this problem, I would
find it hard to believe that if there is no physical lpt port on a
workstation it would cause any grief. Having said that, there have been
many things in the past I wouldn't have thought would cause problems with
various services etc. and been proven horribly wrong :)
