Dot Matrix Printer and Print Server Question?
Posted on 2009-04-09
I am currently trying to hook up a Okidata Microline 320 Dot Matrix Printer to a Laptop without a parallel port. We have used a variety of things such as a Parallel to USB Cable Adapter, did not work. We also tried an Encore 3-Port Print Server over a LAN, still does not work. The printer driver is correct because we were sucessful in printing via a standard parallel port on another machine.
My question is, does this printer support these kinds of adapters or are we stuck with only being able ot use the interface of Parallel to Parallel.
OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3
Driver that worked on other machine: IBM Proprinter
