I have an old WIN95 machine that used a LPT port to send .txt files to our CNC machines in the shop. My WIN95 machine finally failed and I am using a XP machine as its replacement. I can plug the same communication cable into the LPT port on the XP machine but the communication software needs to be directed to a COM port. Is there a way to call an LPT port a COM port in XP? Can someone please give me some pointers as to how? The WIN95 machine had softwre that did not reference a COM port.
