Vista LPR printing

Last updated on July 6th, 2015 at 03:12 pm

Thanks to the Delphi Geek’s post When Vista Doesn’t Print I finally got Vista to print to my multiport print server a D-Link DP 300U.

Earlier versions of Windows worked by just adding a local port. Windows Vista allows you to do it just like always, but it doesn’t work.

You must first install LPR Port Monitor feature via Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off > Print Services. Then create a new LPR port and add the IP address and queue name.

Hope it helps someone else out there. Plus I keep a note here.
