Hi,

This is phani, I face a problem with dos printing. When i print from windows command using dir<prn i am able to print. But before win98 boots if i press f8
and select comand mode or safe mode i cannot print. Foud problem with onboard parallel port. Replaced a new cpu it is working fine. But my question is when i added a addon parallel port i found the same problem. I think the print is not getting routed to lpt2. If so pls help me how to make the addon parallel port active.

Thanks in advance. :hello:

What kind of printer? Most printers today are Windows printers that cannot print from DOS.
