Try Start --> Programs --> MS DOS

or Start --> Run --> enter CMD

this will take you to a DOS screen

To print a file use the type command and pipe it to LPT1
e.g. type myfile.log > lpt1

NOT PRINTING OUT OF DOS PROGRAM


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.

HAVE A DOS BAKERY PROGRAM THAT IS USED DAILY. OUR XEROX PRINTER BIT THE DUST AND MY BOSS HAD ME RESEARCH AND PURCHASE A NEW ONE. PURCHASED A CANON MF6540. ONLY PROBLEM IS, NO ONE TOLD ME IT HAD TO BE A DOS...


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.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Extra Line when printing from a dos-based program


well..that EOJ line, is possibly farther down in the program settings, and is like a page break. the Dell is only doing what it's reading, so the answer is in the programming of the application. Perhaps you might query that company about how well that program interfaces with the Postscript quality printer you have?
