    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?

    I disagree with steveoskh, I have a line printer (printonix) and I use the "Epson FX" as the emulator and it works fine.
