View Full Version : Printing accross networked computers



28-09-1998, 09:33 PM
I have 2 computers connected with network cards and cable using Windows 95. The main reason being for backing up files to each others hard drive and printing, since each computer has a different printer connected. All works very well, except for one little thing:

We are using a couple of DOS based programs and have the need to print on the others computer printer at times. However, we can only select the local Lpt port in the programs and hence, cannot configure the networked printer. No configure, no print. Is there a simple way, i.e. a batch file, which allows us to capture the print signal to the local Lpt port and re-direct it to the networked printer at the other end of the network?

Your help would be appreciated.
