I have an NT workstation trying to print to a HP Laserjet 4000 through a Belkin F1T015 Auto Switch Plus 4 port parallel switch.  I get an immediate error printing to LPT1, however I can print directly to the printer with the Centrix cable plugged directly in to the printer.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Bob Fagan

aaaaaaaargh....... fingers seem to outshine my brain today.. the first thing I see is that the switch is not IEEE-1284 compliant.... and your printer is a talker...
you might look at the other Belkin offerings

Also, watch your cable lenth. When you daisy chain, be sure not to surpass 15 feet as you would start losing communication.
