  • LPT1 capture to a file.

    Hello,


    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction
    about capturing/redirecting LPT1 to a file. I have an old DOS
    application that only prints to a specific HP printer, needless
    to say HP no longer supports the ink cartriges and paper for it.
    I desperatly need know how to redirect what ever data shows up
    at the printer port to a file. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated. I have even considered using another computer to
    emulate the HP printer by linking the two parallel ports to each
    other.

    Mark,
    There is an old DOS utility called PRN2FILE.COM by Tom Kihlken that will take output headed for the Parallel ports and convert it to a text file.
    You could probably find it on ZDNET, or I can email you a copy.

    Regards,
