This driver allows a DOS session to print to an LPT port that has been redirected (or captured) to a network printer.

DEVICE=C:\OS2\Mdos\Lptdd.sys 

Parameter:

  • -T:ss

Specifying the timeout value on send/receive (default 10 seconds). If using slow media (diskette), or when LPTool is used on a very busy system, increase this for reliable operation.

  • -P:n

Specifying the LPT port-address to use (default is 1 for using 0378). Use LPTDD.CMD to define the correct n.

The free LPTool is developed by Jan van Wijk available at http://www.dfsee.com

TIP: Together with e.g. the great FileCommander/2 by Brian Havard create a user-menue entry that sends the current directory to the connected Computer for an easy use.

Example:

S: Copy to Remote via parallel port
D:\TOOLS\LPTOOL\LPTOOL send
