I have a label printer connected to a PC via standard USB 2.0 A to B cable. What I need in terms of functionality is a USB Y cable that would send the print data stream down both cables simultaneously. I know.... I know... these cables don't exist, and due to the characteristics of the USB com protocol, it's not as simple as splicing in another cable. However, I know there must be a way to create a redundant data stream.
REQUIREMENT: The printer must still generate a label and the 2nd data stream will be routed to a PC and captured for logging purposes and further processing.
Due to security issues, I wont be allowed to touch the computer or printer, therefore whatever solution I use must reside between the PC and Printer.
