Minilpd is an tiny Windows application that acts as a LPD (Line Printer Daemon). It will listen for and capture print data on the LPD port 515.
Miniraw is an tiny Windows application that acts as a Raw or streaming port. It will listen for and capture print data on the RAW port 9100
Simply download the required tool, unzip it to it’s own directory and execute it. Your computer is now listening for print data on port 515 or 9100.
When a print job or print capture arrives at your PC, it will be captured. Minilpd will capture a control file (ie CAPFIL1.CTL) and bin file (ie CAPFIL1.BIN). Miniraw will capture a single bin file with the following format (yymmddhhmmss.bin)
In both cases, the bin file is the printer data file you want.
