in thread Raw Data to Printer on Win XP

Since the OP has "brushed up on MODE" which alows you to re-direct printer ports I figured it was on topic. You can often also FTP directly to the newer printers. Putting a file will cause a the printer to print it, it will also bypass the print server queue. :-)
Of course that may not solve you problem either.
Just my 2 cents.

    Your response was on point and I thank you for it. But see my reply to yours (beginning "Well, yes. I had thought of that..." explaining that the printer is at USB002 attached directly to this laptop. And note the rest of that sub-thread including the exchange with BrowserUk.

    Is there a MODE or NET USE command (perhaps in combination with other settings) that would establish redirection of LPT1 (which currently seems to be unknown on this system) to USB002.
