Configure usb port for lpt1

Morning every one, I'm at my wits end trying to configure a USB port so that my canon printer will work using LPT1. Have tried going through Priner and Fax/ properties. Using the virtual usb option no go. and then tried the local port option. Any help will be more tham welcome. Cheers Leo

  1. Well elmtree, I'm not certain of what the situation is. Is the printer a parallel printer or a USB printer?

    Are you trying to make a USB port print using lpt1? This is not going to happen. I know of no redirect to have a USB port output to a printer using lpt1. They are two different connectors.

    To get a parallel printer to work on a USB port is going to be a challenge without a USB to parallel adapter cable.
    You can get one of them at Tiger Direct (among many places)

    It will also be a bigger challenge to make a parallel port send to a USB printer.

    If the computer has no USB port, they are available just about anywhere computer accessories are sold.
