Microsoft has something on that:

If that doesn't work there is a commercial product that claims it can redirect LPT to USB:

You can redirect the printer to LPT1. To do that, first share the printer. Then, from a DOS prompt, type:

NET USE LPT1: \\pc_name\printer_share_name /persistent:yes

where printer_share_name is the sharename you've given the printer when you shared it.

This assumes your application can drive the printer correctly. If it can't then something like DOSPRN will do the trick. It feeds the DOS output through the Windows printer driver. See:
