Need to know some additional information. This sounds like a windows security issue.
in windows XP..
In control panel...
in network connections
Click File, click Network Setup Wizard. This sometimes helps.

Is there an account on the Windows computer that the DOS computer can authenticate as?
Other solution: Change security settings on the computer sharing the printer "AKA: print server"

if you have adminsitrative rights on the Print Server... and it is windows XP Pro
Right click the printer, click properties, click security, click add, click everyone, click full control.

This is an open door policy setup.. but it just might fix your issue.

Disabling windows firewall also may help...

another link I found that might be helpful.

Make sure that your computed is on the same workgroup or domain as the other computers are.

You can check that by going into the control panel. Press system. Press the computer name tab. Change the domain name or workgroup accordingly.

    Make sure that Windows Firewall is turned off in Windows security.  Your firewall security should only be on the router only.  If you have anti virus programs such as Norton or McAfee, there could a firewall turned on there as well.  It should be turned off as well.

It can't.
DOS printing need LPTx parallel port because DOS don't understand/support USB.

YOU can share the printer with windows printer driver, then
go to CMD prompt
Net use lpt1 \\<computername>\<printersharename>
Then print DOS job to LPT1

The problem is, the DOS program tries to print to LPT1, which is your parallel port. We need to redirect this to your USB Port. First, you have to set up printer sharing: Go to Control Panel | Printers | Your printer and share the printer. Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type go to Start | Run and type in: NET USE LPT1: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES That should do the trick, unless there's a driver problem, which is unlikely for a dot matrix printer. If that doesn't work, let me know and I can troubleshoot further.

With three different versions of Windows being used now, you’ll probably find yourself trying to share files or printers between them. Today we take a look at how to share files and printers between Vista and Windows 7 machines.
In this example we are on a basic home network using Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit version) and Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit version).
Set Windows 7 Share Settings
On the Windows 7 machine we need to set up a few things in Advanced Sharing Settings. First type network and sharing center into the search box in the Start Menu and hit Enter.
Then click on Change advanced sharing settings…
Now in Advanced Sharing Settings, make sure to turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Make sure these are enabled in both the Home or work and Public profiles.
Depending on your setup, you might want to turn off password protected sharing. Other wise you’ll need to enter the password for each machine in, which isn’t that big of a deal. Turning it off while you’re setting it up makes things a bit easier though by saving a step.
Set Vista Share Settings
On the Vista machine we need to double check and make sure it’s sharing settings are ready to go. Right-click on Network and choose Properties.
The Network and Sharing Center opens up. Under Sharing and Discovery we need to turn on File Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and Network Discovery.
Also on the Vista machine you might want to turn off password protected sharing … but it’s completely up to you.
Share Files Windows 7 View
Now that we have the correct Settings On each machine, it’s time to put it to the test. Open up Network on the Windows 7 machine, and you should see all of the machines on the network. The Vista machine in this example is VISTAGEEK-PC.
There was no need to enter a password to access the Vista machine because password protection is turned off. But now you can go through and see the User Shared folders. In this example both public and Users directories are shared.
Share Files Vista View
Now on the Vista computer, double click on Network and you should see the Windows 7 machine (where in this instance it’s MYSTICGEEK-PC).
I enabled password protection on the Windows 7 machine so we can take a look at the login screen that will be displayed before connecting.
Then you’ll see the folders and devices that are shared. Here you can see the HP printer connected to the Windows 7 machine is available.
And you can continue browsing through all available shared folders and files.
Printer Sharing
As we showed above, you can see the printer connected to Windows 7. Let’s make sure we can connect to it and print a test document. In Vista click on the Start menu and type printers into the search box and hit Enter.
Right-click on the shared printer and select Properties.
Under the General tab click on the Print Test Page button.
The following message is displayed while the test page prints out on the printer connected to your Windows 7 machine.
Another test you might want to perform is opening a test document and making sure you can print that to the Windows 7 printer.
Provided everything prints out successfully you might want to make it the default printer.
If your machines aren’t able to see each other or the printer isn’t working…here are a few steps you might want to use to determine where the problem is.
Double check to make sure Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing is enabled on both machines as shown above.
In this example both machines are connected to a Belkin home wireless router and IP addresses are dynamically assigned. If you are using Static addresses make sure you can ping the IP address of each computer. If not, double check the assigned IP Address and cabling of each computer…
If the printer isn’t working, double check to make sure you have the latest drivers for each OS installed.

I have sumsang SCX3200 & I want to print my some Document & figer frm dos mod. Windows Xp is runing on my desktop pc

DOS applications cannot print on USB ports, but there's a workaround by using a share and the NET USE command, first create a share of that printer check this site:, (take note of the name you gave the shared printer) than you use NET USE command to connect the shared printer to a virtual port (LPT2) first click on START, than RUN, than type CMD than hit enter, type the following command " net use lpt2: \\\(shared printer name) /yes " than hit enter, if you have a " command completed successfully " than you have your shared printer connected to a virtual port (LPT2) now it is just a matter of setting your DOS software to print to LPT2... and VOILA! it prints...

Good luck!

Not so much a problem but got message printed out while trying to print a document. Unsupported Personality: UNKNOWN. Does this mean something I should be concerned with ??

An error page will print with the words "Unsupported Personality: PCL " in the upper left hand corner. The printers are host-based and do not support PCL printing; therefore, installing an alternate PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver will frequently generate this error condition. NOTE: This error condition occurs by design when an attempt to print with a PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver occurs and is NOT a bug within the product software. SOLUTION: Install the correct HP LaserJet Host-Based Printer Driver or the HP LaserJet printing system software for the product. These drivers are available for download from the HP web site. Click here to go to the HP web site drivers and downloads page. NOTE: There are several programs (such as accounting, invoicing, court documentation applications) that are 16 bit (DOS) programs with a 32 bit (Windows) overlay. Due to the nature of these applications and the associated Windows overlay, the errors may continue with the correct printer drivers. These applications do not typically support a host-based output device, and as such would not be supported in these environments.

There is a workaround that will work for many dos based programs.

It will remove several of the advanced feature from your printers functionality but may solve the problem.

Try this:

Open control panel, switch to classic view if not already in it. Open the Printers folder, then Right-Click on the Canon MF6540, select properties.

Once it opens the instruction may vary slightly for your printer but should roughly be:

1. Select the advanced tab, then click print processor, then select one of the RAW modes on the right and Ok twice to close the windows.

2. Try printing in the DOS program, if it fails, repeat step one and try the next option. If none of the RAW modes work, try the TEXT mode.

If none of these methods work you may need to emulate a LPT Port for the DOS program to Print to, forward it to the Printer and then repeat the above process. DOS programs are notoriously finicky about settings so you will likely have to try several settings to find one that matches.

If your first attempts fail and you need to emulate the LPT port get back to me by adding a comment to this post and I will see if I can find a good emulator to try for you. Or you can buy a router to connect the printer to that already has emulated LPT software such as the Linksys WRT610N. Sharing the printer through such a router creates a virual LPT port on your computer which may work.

If you need more direct help, try clicking my name and clicking Ask Me for paid support. If you can handle the normal speed here in the forums simply reply and we will help you as soon as we're able.

Hope this helps FixYa,

How to redirect lpt print to canon lbp-3000 printer

Here's what you need to do. ON the computer that you want to associate that LPT1 port, you need to know the name of the computer, and the share name of the printer. In this case, I am assuming you have the Canon LBP-3000 physically connected to this system running the FoxPro program.

Step one: Find the computer name. Click on START SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click SYSTEM. Click on the tab COMPUTER NAME and under FULL COMPUTER NAME, write down the name. Click OK to exit the window.
Step two: Click on START, SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click PRINTERS AND FAXES. Right click on the Canon LBP-3000 printer and click on SHARE. In the window that opens, click on SHARE THIS PRINTER and take note of the name in SHARE NAME: and write it down. Click on OK to share the printer and exit out of the wizard.
Step three: Click on START, RUN. Type CMD in the box and click OK. in the black window, type NET USE LPT1 \\COMPUTER NAME\SHARE NAME

Follow with RETURN or ENTER and you should be good.

USB printing through DOS mode

Google for DOS PRINT USB, and you'll find some utilities that do this.

Or, you can include some commands in your batch file.

First, get the device name:

In a DOS window, type NET VIEW ComputerName (or use

Once you know the printer share name, you use it in a batch file.

NET USE lpt1: \\ComputerName\ShareName /Persistent:Y

This captures the print queue to the shared printer.

You must also go into Printer Properties/Advanced/Print Processor and set it to TEXT

Your copy, print and other commands will work.

Can I print in Dos Programme with USB Printer

Assuming the printer can understand DOS coded printouts (which most should be able to), you can do it like this: Go to Control Panel | Printers | ML 2010 and share the printer. Then go to a command prompt Start | Run | type cmd Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type NET USE LPT2: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES at a command prompt.
