How can I configure an alarm log device in CitectSCADA to print to a USB Printer? 

A quick solution is to  map it to an LPT port. Use the following command line (at a command prompt) to map your printer:

    net use lpt<n>: <\\<PrintServer>\<ShareName>> /persistent:yes

To disconnect persistent LPT<n> connections, use the following syntax:

    net use lpt<n> /delete
