Publisher's Description:

@SwIt Printfil - Printfil allows printing from DOS, Unix, Linux, host programs to any Windows printer, including USB, GDI, network printers, fax printers and PDF writers, without changes to the original applications.

You can set your application to print to an ascii file, or you can let Printfil capturing one or more parallel ports (PRN: , LPT1: to LPT9:), automatically redirecting your print jobs to any printer, even to a printer which is physically connected to the captured port or if no LPT ports are physically installed on your PC.

it allows also:

- preview printing

- include logos or other images stored in separate files

- colorize the text

- print A4 landscape sheets in place of printing on dot-matrix 136-column printers

- print to ANY printer installed on the Windows Control Panel, including USB, GDI, Windows-only and Virtual printers

- send print jobs via fax (using any third-party fax software which acts like a printer - eg. Microsoft Fax - or a multifunction - all-in-one - printer)

- use specialist windows fonts (barcodes, for instance) as well as normal characters

- export print jobs in PDF format, with or without user intervention, even with encryption and password protection

- send print jobs via e-mail by using your own e-mail client program or an SMTP server, with or without user intervention

- use a single, customizable set of escape sequences for ALL printers, regardless of make, model and emulation provided (if any, as for GDI printers)

- print complex jobs to legacy printers in RAW mode (graphs, drawings)

- archive a copy of all the captured jobs

- use multiple printers simultaneously

All this without changes to your applications

If you are developing host based applications (like Unix) to run on a Windows Terminal Emulator, you can stop battling with transparent-print characters and different settings for different printers. All you need is a shared file system (NFS, SCO-VisionFS, Samba, ...) or a Terminal Emulator, and PRINTFIL

Version: 5.8

I tried DOSPRN, DOS2USB, Printfil. Printfil is the only one gave me an error lpt1 assignment. So I deleted the net use mapping. After that it worked fine on Windows XP. It did not work for me on the Vista. However, now that I am a little bit more familiar with the settings. I should try all 3 and see. Printfil is a bit pricey compare to the other two. But if it is the only one that works then may be it should be.

I'm in search of a solution for redirecting LPT to Virtual Printer USB port. Printfil is definitely my favourite so far.
