Windows 10 How do I configure a printer which is mapped using the Net Use command



I have a printer which is mapped using the command below:

net use LPT5: \\smbserver\printer3 /persistent:yes

If I issue a print or copy command, the file is sent to the printer and I see it in the output queue on the remote computer.

However, i do not see the printer in printers and scanners which I didn't actually expect to. Does anyone know to add this printer so I can print from Windows applications?

I have tried adding a local printer and creating LPT5 which completes, but when I press the Print Test Page, the document leaves the workstation queue but doesn't print anywhere.

Any feedback is appreciated.
