I once hooked up a 4023 printer to my NI card, and used the DOS driver
software to send a test message to the printer, just to see if it works at
all or not. This very limited test showed no problems at all, my only problem
was to figure out how to translate the OPEN1,4:PRINT#1,"test message":CLOSE1
to the syntax of the NI card driver :-)
