Hi,
I have a question. How do I connect a USB Printer to an existing Parallel Port on my Jet Direct? As the Jet Direct port is very expensive upgrading to USB Jet Direct is not an option.

I was thinking that something like this (see image) may work.
Obviously this is not an ideal situation but it cannot be helped.


Can this be done?

Cheers,
Slayer

Yeah, I thought about that. However if I connect the USB Printer to the Parallel port which driver do I instal USB/Parallel.
