You cannot print to LPT2 as there is no such thing since computers only have one parallel-port

You will have to get your parallel-port (LPT1) fixed or buy a Windows version of Fox Pro and use a USB printer.

"You cannot print to LPT2 as there is no such thing since computers only have one parallel-port "

You are kidding right? Not only can you have multiple physical ports but you can have virtual ones you can redirect printing to network printers via command.

Like net use lpt2: \\printservre\printer

Unfortnately there isn't a command I am aware of to redirect lpt1 to lpt2.
Mode can be used to direct lpt1 to a com port.
Some bios allow you to set lpt2 as lpt1 or visa versa.

If you can find a old app called PRNSWAP.COM it could do as you desire.
Or there is this
