Hi,

I have 2 Star TSP lan printers and what i want is to set it up (through windows setting or third party tool) so that whatever is send to be printed on a certain printer to be printed automatically on a second printer also. For example if i send an order on kitchen printer A to be printed automatically on Kitchen Printer B.

Is there a way using printer properties or using a third party tool to do that?

Thanks

This is just a pooling. I need the same copy to be printed on both printers.

What are you printing from?  If it's an Office application, a print macro would be easy enough.  If it's a proprietary application, that's more tricky...

you can make a macro, to print on one printer, then on the other; add this selection for the other printer at the end :

and you can choose to use a commercial macro software, or do it yourself
