Can I Redirect COMx to LPT1?

By PaquitoGR ·
I have a LPT1 (only) printer but the software I want to use only supports COMx ports.
Does someone know if there is any way to redirect a virtual COM port to a physical LPT1 printer?

Thank you and sorry for my English :)

Mode com1=lpt1
But you'd have to put it into a batch file of some sort to run everytime the machine boots. Autoexec.bat? dunno, never tried it.
This post may start a big storm with the old DOS pros so that might be helpful for you anyway.
