Assinging new USB laser printer to LPT1 port?

Discussion in 'PC Hardware' started by Timo Price, Mar 4, 2009.

    I setup a new laser printer.
    During the installation of the driver I am asked where WinXP should find the USB connected port.

    By default "LPT1" was selected.

    Is that correct?

    How can I find out (without printing a test page) if the USB connected laser printer can successfully be
    seen by WinXP?

    Is the driver active immediately after installation or is re-boot necessary?
