USB to PARALLEL (not PARALLEL to USB)

Discussion in 'PC Hardware' started by Andrew Schumer, Feb 23, 2005.

  1. I'm trying to connect a USB printer to a Print Server that only has a
    Parallel Port.
    I wouldn't think that combination would be so unique, but can't seem to find
    them anywhere.

    I think this cable would have a USB "B" socket plugging into the printer
    and the other end would be a DB25 Male socket, that plugs into the
    DB25 Female socket in the back of print server.

    Can't seem to find any adaptors or gender changers, even wireless options
    to accomplish this and really, really don't want to trash the print server.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Andrew
