Don't forget to set the option
printer = on
in the terminal configuration
file and make certain that printer test,
command, works correctly.
Run the printer setup master from the folder "Printers". Choose "Local printer" and set
Plug and Play flag off.
Create a new port, type: Standart TCP/IP Port
Specify the terminal IP-address (a symbolic name is also acceptable, but in network
settings should be configured DNS). All the terminals, having connected printers,
should have fixed ip-addresses. If you use the dhcp-server from Windows Server
distributive, then you can set fixed terminal ip-addresses in the section
Reservations of the DHCP management console. Its impossible to set fixed addresses
in the tftpd32 program.
The port name is just a memo for the administrator.
End of the port creation:
Now you can set drivers for YOUR printer.
Printing from DOS to lpt1 port
On the terminal (in windows command prompt, after user login) run command:
net use lpt1 \\servername\printername
After that any DOS-application in this user session will be able to print to
lpt1, and data will be redirected to the printer \\servername\printername.
If server physical port lpt1 is not disabled, server won't permit such operation.
You can pass around this by renaming server physical port lpt1 to lpt3. Login
as administrator, rightclick on "My computer" - Manage - Device manager -
Ports (com & lpt) - lpt1 - Properties - Port Settings - choose LPT3.
After this server physical port will be LPT3 and terminal user can run command
net use lpt1 \\...
