RedMon - Redirection Port Monitor

Transparent PostScript printing from Windows.


The RedMon port monitor redirects a special printer port to a program. RedMon is commonly used with Ghostscript and a non-PostScript printer to emulate a PostScript printer. RedMon can be used with Ghostscript as a PDF creator.

RedMon can be used with any program that accepts data on standard input.

Using RedMon you create a redirected printer port. If you connect a Windows printer driver to the redirected printer port, all data sent to the redirected port will be forwarded by RedMon to the standard input of a program. The output of this program can be sent to different printer port, or the program can generate whatever output it desires.

See the RedMon online help for more details.


RedMon version 1.9 supports Windows 7, Vista and XP SP3.

RedMon version 1.7 supports older platforms including Windows 95/98 and NT (3.51, 4, 2000 and XP SP1).

Source code is included. The RedMon licence requires that you include the source if you redistribute RedMon.

All user text is stored in language specific resources. Translating RedMon to another language should be straightforward.
