we have an IBM 6400 Printer (co-ax cable) that we would like to use with Great Plains. What type of network adaptor and emulation do i use?
Watch Question


This is a line printer.  To get it to print from Great Plains you will need to have it setup as a PC printer or network printer.  I am sure it is possible, but why would you want to do this?
