HP LJ 1000 on a 3 Port (paralel) LAN Print Server

Hello,
 
Is it possible to connect a HP LJ 1000 to a 3 Port (paralel) LAN Print Server.
The printer comes only with a USB cable and I really need to connect it to the print server.
 
Thank you

PS: LJ1000 cable has a DB25M (to connect in printer's DB25F) and ends with the USB.

I was wondering if a DB25M - DB25M will work?

From your description (printer=USB, print server=paralell) I'd say definitely No. Unless, of course, the printer actually has a parallel interface, in which case you only need to find a suitable cable.

The Laserjet 1000 isn't a networkable printer -  the cable that you are talking baout that comes with the printer does it have a small pod attached to it -  ie does one end look like a parallel connector??


if so i'm sorry to tell you this but you cannot network this printer via a print server of any description..

it can onloy be networked via Direct (local) connection with network sharing through Windows-sharing only.
the 2-meter USB cable with attached formatter pod, is what causes the problem here -  this contaions the formatter, and must be attached directly to your pc, as it holds soem software needed for use on it and downlods it when needed..



My best advice is to change the printer -  you can only use windows sharing with this.
