A. Windows NT provides built in ability to monitor print queues fromthe command line using the NET PRINT command.

To view the current print queue use syntax

C:> net print \

For example:

C:>net print \LNPSPA0001LNPRTP0017

Printers at \LNPSPA0001

Name                         Job #      Size            Status

LNPRTP0017 Queue           1 jobs                      *Printer Active*
     saviljo                   247       120            Printing
The command completed successfully.
