Hi! everyone!!  I am new here and I'm a rookie in the computer servicing field. I have a windows xp computer as the NComputing server. I'm using two thermal printers(Epson T81) one on the NComputing server and the other on the Client(NComputing). The printer on the server is connected to the parallel port and the printer on the client is connected to the usb port. I need to use both printers simultaneously. How can I do that? Please help..

Seems to me all you have to do is add both printers on the client? One is local, one is network (shared by the server). That doesn't work?

Hi Bludshot! Thanks for the reply. NComputing uses the same computer as the server and the client. I'm using the admin account as the server and a local account as the client.

I am probably missing something to do with NComputing, but, all I know is if I had a client computer, with 2 printers wired directly to it, one to USB and one to Parallel port, then I would simply add both printers to client, and print directly to them.

Forgot to tell you one thing that I'm using the LPT port because I'm printing from a dos program
