Current setup:

I have a PLC that, under certain conditions, will print information to a dot-matrix printer that it is connected to.

Desired setup:

Replace the printer with a PC (which has a parallel port) that can read the data and save it to a file.

Does anybody know of any software that can accomplish this? The platform would be Windows XP.

Here is a link to a device (and software) to do that. I don't have any experience with it.
