SOURCE: epson lx300+ii with serial port to fujitsu pc

use the com1, and use a baud rate like 9600, with 8 and 1 bit stop. dont. be sure that is in ESC/P or IBM as you requiered. if your software use directly the serial port, be sure that the bios set up is properly. i think that the lx300+ have less buffer than lx300+2
and if you use high speed, could loose info.

What happens wen rtc Batt is unloaded


Hello. batt files or batch files are used by your operating system to run a list of commands created by ms-dos or by you. A good example of a batch file is the autoexec.bat which is loaded each time the computer boots to MS-DOS. Batch files are like shortcuts on your desktop, when they are run they pass information through the command line and these sets of instructions run commands or programs on your computer. Did that help?

How to find your MAC address using MS-DOS


The MAC address is the physical address your computer's Ethernet card or network interface card (NIC) uses to identify itself to other computers and devices on your network. There are different ways to find your Ethernet card's MAC address, depending on what operating system and programs you have installed. Since most Windows-based computers have access to the MS-DOS command prompt, using DOS to find your MAC address is one standard way to do it.

There are a couple of different tools you can use in MS-DOS to find your MAC address. All of them requiring opening a command prompt window, which you can do by typing "cmd" into the Run bar on the Start menu (or in Windows Vista or 7, you can type it into the Search bar instead).

- Getmac

Getmac is a utility that is included on Windows Vista computers and on newer Windows XP systems. Typing "getmac" by itself on a command line will return the MAC addresses of any NICs that you have installed in your computer. (If you have an Ethernet NIC and a wireless NIC, for example, Getmac will list the MAC addresses for both of them.)

- Ipconfig

Ipconfig is a command that will display your IP address if you are currently connected to a network. However, by adding the "/all" switch to it, you can also see your MAC address, as well as many other configuration settings. Type "ipconfig /all" and look for the line labeled "Physical Address." If you have more than one NIC, the MAC address for each NIC will be displayed separately.

Ms dos command prompt


is not present in any operating system after Windows Millennium (the last iteration of the Windows 9x family).
What we currently have is a command line interface- accessible via start > run > type command or cmd and then press enter, or start > all programs > accessories > command prompt.
Now, some of the commands w/in the modern day command line interface (CLI) are throwbacks to the original dos days, however they *ARE NOT* the same as the original dos versions. If you wish to experience original DOS there are currently 3 methods: one use an emulator like DOSBOX; two, run a virtual machine (for instance VMware client) of DOS; three, do some garage sale/dumpster diving and get an older system to be your guinea pig system ( I like this approach the best since it's fun getting an old system up and running then playing with an actual live copy instead of a VM machine or emulator)

When I try to print the computer says I have the wrong port for my lexmark X5650ex printer.


  1. Create a folder on your desktop and call it Lex1020.
  2. Detach the requisite bin file (JETBIN1020.BIN) to the folder you have just created.
  3. In Windows, go to Start, Programs, MS-DOS Prompt.
  4. At the DOS prompt (C:WINDOWS>) type:
    cd desktop
    and press ENTER.

  5. Then type:
    cd Lex1020
    and press ENTER.
  6. Then type:
    copy/b jet1020.bin LPT1:
    and press ENTER.
    As shown below, the following line should appear just below the last command you typed in:
    1 file(s) copied
    enus461_dos_en_uk.gif
    The Lexmark 1020 Control Program will now appear. It should print out a line containing some gibberish characters and also the words Lexmark Color Jetprinter 1020.
