Plug 2 printers on LPT1 with a switch box
Posted on 1997-07-14
I want to plug 2 printers on LPT1 with a switch box: a laser on A and a dot matrix on B. I added the 2 printers in WIN95, so that when I click on "settings" and "printers", I see the 2 printers icons. So I tested.
I put the switch on A, right clicked on the laser printer icon and clicked on "set by default": the printing is ok.
I then put the switch on B, right clicked on the dot matrix printer and clicked on "set by default"... I has printed garbage....
It was working on my old computer running Win95 (I didn"t set it myself)... I just had to switch from A to B and it was ok.
What am I doing wrong?
