I have a DOS based program to program my Icom radio.
The serial port radio programming aspects still work well under XP Pro with SP2 BUT:
The printer output in the software is to the parallel port.
As my printer is a USB printer "Houston we have a problem."
Is there any way the output to the Parallel port (LPT1) can be captured and redirected to the USB port (USB001).
I understand that the LPT1 port is a physical address and USB is a software port but surely there has to be a way to use a TSR or similar to capture and redirect.
Failing this does anyone know of a hardware adapter that will do the job between the parallel port and the USB printer. I know that USB to parallel adapters work but I haven't found any info on anything going the other way.
