DOS2USB is an efficient and steady solution when it comes to capturing and redirecting MS-DOS print jobs to USB, GDI or network printers. Because it extends the printing ability of DOS programs, the application allows you to send your documents to any printer you want.
The main window is very simple and intuitive, containing all the necessary options that you might want to configure. The Printer button enables you to choose the printer device you are interested in and view basic details such as status and type, set page orientation to Portrait or Landscape and select paper size and source.
In case you want to use a printer shared through your network, you can press the Network button, located in the bottom pane of the ‘Print Setup’ window.
Also, DOS2USB enables you to modify the font type to ‘Courier’, ‘Lucida Console’, ‘Verdana’ or ‘Arial’, change the text color, set the left and the top margin, choose the base CPI you want and modify the code page to ‘Cyrilic’, ‘Latin’, ‘ANSI’ or ‘Arabic’. Additionally, you can change the port from LPT1 to LPT4 and PRN.
Once the program is properly configured, it will operate all your print jobs in the background, requiring no attention from your side. This way, you are able to work at your daily activities and print any document you want without being disturbed by DOS2USB.
Considering that the print job redirection works well even if a printer is connected to the captured port, the application helps you to convert your USB printer to a DOS one.
To sum things up, DOS2USB is a practical utility that helps you to capture your print job directly from the MS-DOS and redirect it to the Windows based printer or to a fax (using any third-party fax software acting like a printer - i.e. Microsoft Fax).
