printing from a notebook
Posted on 2003-03-24
We have one printer with one parallel port. We have two computers hooked up to this printer through a manual switch box. This all works fine for us since we actually don't do a lot of printing. Now, we recently acquired a notebook pc and would also like to occasionally print from that. I am looking for a fairly simple solution here that wouldn't recquire the novice notebook user to remove/reconnect cables. (It scares them.) The notebook has a USB port that could be used since this does not seem to put terror in the heart like those more intimidating larger cable ends.
