i have a DOS program called RealtPro
It gives me the option of printing to LPT1, LPT2 ports

The computer only has a USB or Network Printer
It does not have a LPT port.

How can I get it to print to USB or Network printer?


This is a new computer. All printers are the same as the old pc.
I copied the DOS from old pc to new using a flash drive.
The program works-just not the printer.
The printer did work on the old pc.
ANy settings or program that I should be looking for on the old PC?
