Print from DOS-Windows-Unix-Linux to Windows printers USB, GDI, PDF, e-mail, network, fax, virtual. Capture from LPT1: to LPT9: and redirect the jobs, even to a printer physically connected to the captured port and w/out physical LPT ports installed.
Features: Printfil allows printing to Windows printers, from Dos, Windows programs or Unix, Linux, legacy applications running on a Windows PC via telnet or other terminal emulator software. Print from DOS-Windows-Unix-Linux to Windows printers: USB, GDI, PDF, e-mail, network, fax, virtual. Capture PRN: and from LPT1: to LPT9. You can set your application to print to an ASCII file, or you can let Printfil automatically capture one or more parallel port (even from LPT1: to LPT9: simultaneously), and redirect your DOS print jobs to any Windows printer, including USB, GDI, IP network printers, fax printers and PDF writers, even if a printer is physically connected to the captured port or no LPT ports are physically installed, on any machine running Windows 95,98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, including Terminal Server environments and Linux via Wine.
One of the best features is that you do not need to make any changes in the application to get printing done. SwIt will take care of all the actions required. Do a complete print preview to make sure everything is going to print ok. You would be able to include images in BMP and EMF formats so that creating logos, invoices or letterheads is not a problem and need not go looking for pre-printed stationary. Print documents directly to a Fax printer, export PDFs or email the documents with encryption and password protection. Archiving the prints jobs in the digital form also is no hassle at all.
Overall: Quite a handy and versatile solution for getting print jobs out of legacy systems like DOS machines or document prints from Linux machines easily.
