We're considering making a move to Mac, but unfortunately rely on some ancient DOS applications from 1980-1987 that we currently run under DOSEMU on Linux.
These applications need to print and expect LPT1 parallel port to be available. Clearly, there's no parallel port on recent Macs.

Does anyone know if there is a virtualisation solution that allows mapping LPT1 in the guest OS (DOS) to a virtual printer queue on the host OS (OSX), or similar solution?

Thanks in advance for any insight
