Configure the LPT port

To configure the LPT port

  1. Open the Administration Website.
  2. In the navigation pane, under Virtual Machines, point to Configure and then click the appropriate virtual machine.
  3. In Configuration in the lower part of the page, click LPT ports.
  4. Click LPT1 to enable the port for the virtual machine, and then click OK.
To perform this procedure, you must have the appropriate permissions. If you do not have the appropriate permissions, you will either receive an error message or you will not be able to view certain menu items and options described in this procedure. To change your permissions, contact your Virtual Server administrator. For more information, see Securing Virtual Server. For instructions on opening the Administration Website, see "Open the Administration Website" in Related Topics. Only LPT1 on the physical computer can be used as a parallel port. If a virtual machine is currently running, and you change the LPT1 setting, you must restart the virtual machine before you can use the port.
