    Default USB PRINTING

    Is there a way to print to a USB port using Alpha 4. Can it be a shared network printer?

    Thanks

    Hi David
    I usually do a "net use" command to redirect the lpt1 port to a shared network printer. I create a batch file to do the "net use lpt1..etc" then start Alpha. Not sure about printing directly to USB, I have never tried that.

    I have had the same problem.. The fix is:

    Make the USB port/printer a network printer and set it for sharing.

    Then A$ sends it to lpt1, which is really the usb port .

    Works well.

    Setting up a batch file using net use solved the problem.

    Thanks for your reply.
