Share a LPT1 port

By Cory.Sharplin ·
Can you share a LPT1 port so another networked pc can map to it.

Currently the LPT1 port has a cutter attached and I want to be able to select it from another PC on the network so both PC can use it.

If the cutter, whatever that is (!) is recognised by the host pc as a printer then yes. If it is some funky hardware that has it's own proprietry interface driver for the LPT port, then no!

Is this cutter like a plotter if so then click that device and go to proberties and share it give it a name then user b can just search the network for user a and use the cutter by right clicking that device and loading it to there system but he will only be able to use it as long as user a pc is turned on.

Hope this helps.
