I have a retail store with 7 x Win 7 Workstations. i have 1 x Epson Tm-T88iii thermal receipt printer connected and installed on lpt1 port on my 1 workstation. We use a Dos application for our sales. The...


Hi, details below for creating a ersistent connection from LPT1: to you \\computer\\printername printer. Do the following on the other workstation that is not printing.

Use the net.exe command to establish a persistent connection.

To do this, use the following syntax at a command prompt:

net use lpt1 \\printserver\sharename /persistent:yes

where printserver is the print server that is sharing the printer, and where sharename is the name of the printer share.

For example, to map LPT1 to a printer shared as Laser1 on a print server that is named Pserver, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. Type net use lpt1 \\pserver\laser1 /persistent:yes, and then press ENTER.
4. To quit the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.

Note In Windows XP, non-administrative users cannot map an LPT port to a network printer path when the LPT port exists on the computer as a physical parallel port.

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!

Sometimes when I'm printing, it will stop printing and show DATA PCL on the screen. I shut it off and back on and it prints garbage.....how can I fix this?? thank you


Try this if connected parallel:

This error may occur if you have a computer with an ECP port in Windows;
INCOMPATIBLE PARALLEL PORT PROTOCOL: During the PLUG n PLAY setup, Windows usually sets the parallel port driver for ECP mode if the computer's hardware port is set for ECP or, in some cases, ECP+EPP. Windows 95 will utilize data compression during ECP data transmission which can cause "garbled information" if the receiving device, such as a printer, is not ECP compatible.

SOLUTION:
Change the Windows Operating System's printer port driver (LPT.VXD) to the standard mode (non-ECP).
Windows XP:
1. Click on "Start", then "Control Panel.
2. Double click on "System:, and click on "Hardware", then click on "Device Manager"
3. Click on "Ports (COM & LPT)" section, and click on "ECP Port".
4. Click on "Driver", then "Update Driver"
5. Click "Install from List or Specific Location (Advanced)", click on "Next"
6. Select "Don't search - I will Choose Driver to Install", click "Next"
7. Select "Show Compatible Hardware"
8. Select "Standard Port" on the left window and "Printer Port" on the right window
9. Click on "Next" and Click on "Finish" and close all windows
10. Reboot/Restart your computer to ensure the changes are activated.

When I print something, I get a completely not understandable text. ít seems like my computer show me an english text and somewhere between computer and printer a weird translation takes place....


what is your printer?does your printer use LPT port or parallel port,if your printer do have a USB port better use it than the LPT port.If dont have usb port then reconnect the LPT port firmly both on the printer and your cpu.

Try changing the LPT port mode in the BIOS- there should be like SPP, EPP, ECP. As I recall there are different drivers for USB and Parallel and I don't think Serial is supported. If you installed HP drivers, Uninstall and use the Windows drivers.

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.
