I have a TOSHIBA laptop and a CANON BJC-80 printer, if I connect them by the paralel port it works fine but if I connect them by infrared port the printer doesnot work and Windows sends messages such as  "Cartridge not found", "Printer is not available" etc.
I have tried  LPT3 emulation and  COM1 port and nether case it works. However, according to the infrared icon it seems that the comunication between the machines works.
Somebody can help?

Thank you very much

Hi  jrt01uk,
I'm sorry I'm so late answering you but I couldn't do it before.
Your suggestions helped me find the solution: 'Configur the port as a serial one'. The parallel emulation doesn't work.
 So the points are for you.
Thank you very much for your help.
