DOT4_002 port creation

I need to create a DOT4_002 port.
I have a Epson inkjet printer using virtual port USB_001 and a HP1010 Laserjet Using virtual port DOT4_001 which I was told by HP that they are both the same port, when I print from the Epson the HP1010 form feeds at the end of the print job.

I need to create a virtual port DOT4_002 for the HP1010 to work on, but I'm not quite sure how to this, I have managed to create a port on the port tab in the prinert properties but it does not print anything using that port.

Re: DOT4_002 port creation

thank you for trying but the information does not tell me how to add a second port with just one printer.

I think I will have to lend my friends printer and use that to see if it adds DOT4_002 to my list.

Re: DOT4_002 port creation

I have found the answer to this problem.

Un-install the Epson printer and it's status monitor, re-boot then re-load the Epson without the satus monitor.

That cures the problem
