I know there is not a need to do this anymore with Windows but I was wondering if you can print a file from DOS?
I have tried to do this but I don't see how you can designate the port the printer is on, ie USB001 for example.
That doesn't work and nothing else that I've tried either. Is it possible?

DOS will not recognise USB ports, only LPT, and RS232.
