Mode (Redirect Printing)--Examples

Suppose you want to set up your system so that it sends parallel-printer output to a serial printer. To do this, you must use the mode command twice. The first time, you use mode to configure the serial port; the second time, you use mode to redirect parallel-printer output to the serial port you specified in the first mode command.

For example, if your serial printer operates at 4800 baud with even parity and is connected to the COM1 port (the first serial connection on your computer), you would type the following two commands:

mode com1 48,e,,,b
mode lpt1=com1

If you redirect parallel-printer output from LPT1 to COM1 but then decide that you want to print a file by using LPT1, use the following command before you print the file. This command prevents Windows NT from redirecting the file from LPT1 to COM1.

mode lpt1
