I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would look at installing a PCI parallel port. Ive been in a similar situation, and the only thing I COULD do was that. And it wasnt even much better....

You need to enable bidirectional printing, but as johnb indicates you will only get the required performance with a real port.
