I don't know if what I am posting fits your request. The following tip enables the redirection of a primter stream from COM port to a USB printer.

- First of all share the printer assigning a name, e.g.HP-InkJet;
- Then at prompt type net use COM1 \\%computername%\HP-InkJet /persistent:YES.

Now when you print to COM1 your stream is hamdled by the USB printer.

Sometime the NET USE directive is not retained between power off/on. To avoid re-typing the command make a simple batch of just the command line and store it in the Startup Folder.
