The error occure when I try to map the printer through DOS (NET USE LPTx \\xx\xx)
According to Google there is no such thing as "System Error 66" in this situation.
System Error 66 can be caused when you try to print to a USB printer from a DOS prompt, but obviously that doesn't apply here.
Windows 98 does have a limit on the number of inbound connections - apparently its 100 as opposed to NT4 and Win2k that limit it to 10, and they tell you blatantly that the computer you're connecting to is effectively "full" and can take no more connections. But to confuse the matter, the limits do not apply to third party applications.
I've tried but it has problems that's why I change to Windows 98. If Windows 98 is not the solution, I would hope that you could give me some suggestions.
The only real practical solution I can think of is to move the printer to an XP machine and share it from there. Assuming all 30 users don't need it all at the same time (as in send 30 different documents together), you should have enough leeway to handle the load. XP has better facilities for networking than Windows 98 ever did, plus under XP you don't need to physically connect to the printer - just set it up as the default and it should go straight through if the printer's on.
