I need to make a Canon F30 MultiPass currently installed on a USB port (running under Windows 98 SE) capable of printing to the LPT1 port as well - WITHOUT reinstalling the entire printer solely on the parallel port. Any suggestions how to do this please?
This unit is a multi-function combination printer and scanner. I would prefer to do something like a Novell networking style "printer port capture" type of solution. I would like the scanner to still be able to function under the USB port for faster scanning from Windows applications. At the same time I would like to be able to print to LPT1 as if from a Dos type program. Is this type of solution available?
I can't set this printer driver to do BOTH Dos and Windows printing, from within the Canon driver itself. I can't get a newer version of the software that needs a parallel port LPT1 printer setup. It is an ancient, but very specialized software program.
Thanks in advance to anyone who helps
