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.

    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.

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.

Check the USB printer interface cable.

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

Restart the system, then load the driver.

I cant use usb printer to get print out from dos base softwear


If you are using a NT based Windows (ex. win nt, win 2000, win xp, etc...) you could try sharing the printer than MAP it as a network printer and direct it to a virtual LPT port with a DOS command ex: net use lpt2: \\ComputerName\SharedPrinterName /yes

Than setup the DOS software to print on LPT2 it should worke, i've done this many many times

Note: if you absolutely have to use LPT1 dont forget to change the physical LPT 1 port in Windows hardware manager to something els so it do not conflict with the virtual one

Good luck!

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

Canon BJC 2000 question-1284 to usb


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} USB to Parallel conversion requires translation by XP and Vista's 'hardware interleave' software as well as the USB device manufacturers driver. The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
TIPS:
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.
