Redirect LPT1 from B

by Chris72a In reply to Dos Program print job sen ...

Got this at a client and works well,
Redirect B lpt1 to the share then the dos app will still see lpt1 but windows will redirect.

USE Something like (on B)

from a command prompt.
net use lpt1: \\pcname\printername /y /persistent:yes

Should get you out of trouble.
