Printing with the FireBee

Local printing

On the FireBee, printing works different with the various operating systems:
  • With EmuTOS, local printing via parallel port works well.
    You can print with QED, Wordplus, ...

  • EmuTOS+FreeMinT: Same as above (please install FreeMinT device driver "lp.xdd" from support page). You can also use PH ERP for network printing.

  • Little drawback: NVDI does not work with EmuTOS.

  • FireTOS: Due to a bug in this OS (to be investigated), printing via parallel port is not possible for now.

  • FireTOS+FreeMinT: The FireTOS bug also affects FreeMinT, so printing via parallel port don´t work. Of course you can use PHERP with FreeMinT here.
For all operating systems, there are no USB printer drivers yet.


Printing via network

This is not a "workaround" but the program ProbeHouse Easy Remote Print (PH ERP) from Wong CK. If you own a network printer or shared printer connected to Windows/Linux PC or Mac, PH ERP can send your FireBee print jobs to these devices via network.
PH ERP runs only with MinT/MinTNet.

"PH Easy Remote Print is a client utilising LPD protocol, RAW protocol and Google Cloud Print. Submitting print jobs are now just a simple drag & drop or use the redirector to directly sent print job to your network printer. Monitor LPD print queue and cancel jobs from the GUI."

Download the app from his website: https://sites.google.com/site ... -downloads

For the FireBee you have to use "PHERPCF.PRG", please read further informations in PHERP zip archive/doc/pherp.htm.
