You can daisy chain them.  Plug in your scanner to your computer and then run the printer cable off of the scanner to the printer.  I am assuming you have the correct ports and proper cables.

Nevertheless, if one or the other is USB compliant, you should be able to plug connect them from the back of your machine and run all kinds of stuff.

My set up is HP Pavilion to an HP Scanner, HP Scanner to the DeskJet 712 (no, I didn't use the USB port).  

Turn everything off, then take the parallel cable from the scanner and plug it in to the back of your computer with the other end to the scanner.  Now take the cable assembly from your printer and plug it into the scanner (you'll see the receptacle on the back) and then run the other end to your printer.  The scanner should be on (if it's like mine) and the printer.  Now boot up.  I would open Photoshop or some other program to see if it will recognize the Twain_32 connection.  

It should be pretty straight forward from there because you'll know which connection is not talking.  Of course, you'll need to have whatever software your using to 'recognize' the scanner but that's OK Some proigrams will ask "select twain 32 source"  Hope I haven't confused you, have fun
