The LBP-3000 is a GDI (AKA Windows-only) printer, accordingly with its Specifications, so, there's no way to drive it simply redirecting the DOS data flow.

You may want to have a look at Printfil to enable DOS printing to USB/GDI printers

If you're the original Fox programmer, you may also find this article useful: How to print from Clipper DOS to any Windows printer (well, it was written for Clipper, but Clipper and Fox are pretty similar)

Hope this help.

Davide

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 \\COhow to redirect lpt print to canon lbp-3000 printe - 43f150c.jpg\SHARE NAME

Follow with RETURN or ENTER and you should be good.

    Keep in mind not all USB printers are able to print to DOS or are compatible with DOS. If the above doesn't print to LPT1 but the COMMAND COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY, then the printer may not be able to handle a DOS request.

Ones you remove the driver from the system (Add / Remove Programme)

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.

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,

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
