Parallel -> Serial

I have a DOS program running under windows 95 that will only
allow the printer on the parallel port to be used, is there
anyway that I can tell it to use the serial port instead?

I'm sure that you used to be able to do something similar in
DOS, but have no idea about 95.

Thanks

If you are running the Dos programme under win95 then win95 should take control of the printing. To change the allocated port go to the "properties" dialogue for your printer and select the "details" tab this will enable you to change the port.
