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.
Now Linux and DOS print to USB and all the newest all-in-one Windows-only printers with ease.
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, Windows 7, 2008, including Terminal Server environments and Linux via Wine.
All this without changes to your applications.
Want to print from DOS to USB ? You can!, but Printfil is much more than a simple printing redirection utility.
Once your Linux-DOS printing problems on modern printers will be solved...
...you'll find out that Printfil can also make you saving time and money.
- By the integrated print preview you can see on screen what you are about to print, saving paper and ink if it's not correct
- You can use cheaper GDI printers (Windows-Only) instead of having to buy expensive msdos compatible printers
- You can merge standard Windows images, like BMP and EMF files to your textual print jobs (logos, invoices, letterhead), so that you can get rid of pre-printed forms
- You can directly print to a fax printer instead of printing a sheet and scanning it or walking and wait in front of the fax machine
- With PDF export / e-mailing (including encryption, password protection, with or without user intervention), your legacy print jobs can be sent out easily and with a professional look
- Archiving print jobs in digital format becomes a very simple task
