This is a simple RAW print server for Windows (also includes a tiny *nix script for *nix users) that lets your Windows 98/ME/NT/2K/XP system work as a port 9100 (or 910x) network print server for any of the Windows printers hooked up to the PC.

It's save my life, really :) USB printing from windows local port method works slowly over vpn. The printing from SAP takes 30-120 secs, but with this utility it takes 1-2 secs! :) Thanks :)
(Win7) This mini-service appears easy enough to install, once you figure out the process: 1) move the exe to somewhere in your %PATH% or update the %PATH% with the location 2) open a cmd AS ADMINISTRATOR, even if you already are (avoids Error 5) 3) run your INSTALL or REMOVE with the right printer name exactly (see the Readme) 4) add a firewall rule for TCP 9100 incoming It should work from there. Features in a quick test appear to be exactly what I needed - no silly frills, but all the requirements covered well. Don't remove the binary or revert your %PATH% until after removing the service! There's one untouched support ticket in the queue now, from 6 years ago. I worry no one's watching that queue.
Works well for me with Windows 7 (x64) for legacy HP printer which had no native networking support. Thanks
great program rawprintserver, thanks.
