Hello my friend, Did you all ready try to used linux software in your program before? Cause if you are using Windows base platform before the setting and support capability of Windows Platform is not the same as Linux platform. Particularly the driver of the Printer you are using if it is not supports the linux platform then eventually it will not work. try to check the internet particularly in this site www.ubunto.org and see in the forum any tips and ways to resolve the issue of drivers in linux platform.

Thanks

Dos command print in USB printer


Try this.
You can share the printer and then run a command like:
net use lpt1: \\servername\printername

I think you can go one step further even and add /persistent to the end to make it more permenant.

This will allow your program to send a print job to lpt1.

If you need further explanation of this let me know.
Good Luck

You can access your printer connected to USB port with loop back configuration and print from DOS.
Not only that, you can also print to a printer on the network

Try
Net use lpt1: \\Comp name\ printer name /persisten:yes

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.

Dos Program in FoxPro


To answer the question, I need to k**w if your DOS session is running inside Windows. As this is the most likely scenario, I'll answer assuming that - the answer will be different for DOS only systems.

Has the faulty LPT1 port has actually been removed? If it has, why **t just alter the port number of LPT3 back to LPT1 ? This can be done with jumpers on an old style card, or from device manager inside Windows if plug and play. If **t, you can try the following:

1: If the printer is already installed in Windows on LPT3, skip to step 3:
2: Install the printer in Windows. If you don't have a suitable driver for it, you can use Generic/Text only driver.
3: Right click on the printer, go to sharing, and make the printer shareable. Use a share name of 11 or less characters and ** spaces - e.g. EPSONLX500
4: From the CMD prompt, type the command:

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\Sharename

e.g.

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\EPSONLX500

**te that you do **t need to replace %computername% with your exact computer name - the machine will do it for you.

Finally, for others reading this, you can also use this technique to print from DOS to most "intelligent" USB printers (Hi end Laser, Dot Matrix etc). It probably won't work with "dumb" GDI printers or All-in-ones where Windows has to do all the work. If the printer supports PCL or ESCP printing languages, you are probably going to be OK.
