Go to "Devices and Printers" Right-click select add printer. Select either local printer or network printer. Also is the printer attached to LPT or ethernet? Since youre saying you want to bind LPT1 to an IP.If its a network printer you can attach the IP to a port to be able to print. But if it attached to LPT isn't going to have a IP address, its going to be a local printer

The laptop is wireless (ETH) to hub/swith, the printer is 100BASE/T to same device (hub/switch). Again same as my MAC with no problems...

Thanks

Then the top should work. If not I would use run and type \\printerIp\ that will log into the printer.. Now select the printer and Install or map port..Also since the printer might not have win7 driver...Just download them if it ask you for the driver

If you want to map a remote printer to an LPT you can use net use under a command window

net use lpt1 192.168.1.1 /persistent:yes

NET USE
[devicename | *] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password | *]]
[/USER:[domainname\]username]
[/USER:[dotted domain name\]username]
[/USER:[username@dotted domain name]
[/SMARTCARD]
[/SAVECRED]
[[/DELETE] | [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]]

NET USE {devicename | *} [password | *] /HOME

NET USE [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]
