Antonio,

Yes, you can print to the LPT port on the client side. As long as you have client-side printing option turned on in the Cluster Manager, the GO-Global client software should recognize (all) your local printers. If you have a specific issue with local printing, please submit an online problem report so we can obtain more detail.

Thanks,

-Erik

I have turned the client print side on, but using a command like:

copy test.txt lpt1

it is not possible to print any text to client side printer.

Should I use another way to print it directly?

We have notice that using a windows driver it is perfectly possible, but our need is to print like we use to do using DOS application.

Internally we have somenting like:

open LPT1,cPrt // It opens LPT1 Port and put its handle in cPrt
write cPrt, cText // Write a text string to LPT1 using handle
Close cPrt11 // It closes LPT1

Best Regards,

Antonio,

GO-Global only supports 32-bit Windows applications. Local printing is only supported via a GO-Global session. Printing from a DOS command or prompt is unsupported.
