I have a program that writes to LPT1. We are buying new computers and
the company wants to save the money and not re-buy our label printers
that are parallel only. I bought a USB to Parallel converter but I
cannot figure out how to write to the port. Does anybody have any
ideas. I'm using CA Realia (Windows version 3.3).
Make it a shared printer.
Get to a command prompt by running cmd.
Issue this command: net use LPT1 \\computer_name\printer_name /persistent:yes
Go to the printer on Control Panel, Properties, Advanced, Print Processor.
Change it from raw to text.
If that doesn't work, setup the printer twice: on LPT1 and USB.
Go to the printer's Properties/Ports.
Select Enable Printer Pooling and both printers.
