With machines with more than one parallel port, all printing attempts to ports other than LPT1 results in the output always going to LPT1.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Configure a machine with two or more line printer ports (LPT1, LPT2) and attach a printer to each port.
  2. Start a VDM
  3. Issue the command: "copy <text file> LPT1:". This will print successfully to LPT1.
  4. Issue the command: "copy <text file> LPT2:". This will NOT print to LPT2 as expected; it will instead print to LPT1.
