I have a laser connected to a Ethernethub , the hub on the network.
I can print everything from windows,  but I do have  a few programs that prints from a dos program to LPT1 poort
wich I have to redirect to this  TCP/IP printer , adress  portname  x_DHCPPC6
Can I use in a dos box or the mode command and/or the net  command?  and what would be the comand syntax line?

1. set network printer as your default printer
2. in DOS when u print use port name PRN: instead of LPT1
done !

Does not work,  it takes first printer from printerlist that has a real lpt1:
create a share for the printer then enter the command: net use lpt1 \\servername\printersharename in the command line

TCP/IP must be installed for any DOS based Network printing.

Type Net use LPT2: \\PSXXXXXX\P1
Tell each program to print from LPT2.
