We (unfortunately) still use a DOS program that will of course only print to a LPT port, but we only have TCP/IP printers on the network. I need to redirect any print job sent to LPT1 to a specific printer's IP address.
I am aware of the
NET USE LPT1 \\servername\sharedprinter /PERSISTENT:YES
method to redirect, but cannot share the printers. I have found some third party software that accomplishes what I need to do, but it is much too expensive and I need to find an alternate method.
I have searched here & google but cannot find a solution other than what I worte above. Anyone have a suggestion?
