Question about Canon LASER SHOT LBP-3000 Printer
I am having dos (foxpro) programme that prints to lpt port. I am having canon lpb-3000 printer. I want to redirect the print for dos programme to usb connected canon lbp-3000 printer.
plz give the soultion.
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.

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.
