If you want to do the procedure below to a network printer/plotter then
In Win95/98 you should be able to redirect lpt1 to a network
printer/plotter in the Printer Properties page using a Capture Printer Port
option in the Details tab.
In WinNT/2000 you can use a Net Use command in the autoexec.nt file to do
the same thing.

From a dos prompt you can type "copy *.plt >lpt1", to send the file
directly to the parrallel port. Only do this from the computer that is
directly attached to the plotter via LPT1. The *.plt would have had to be
created for your plotter specifically.
