    I know nothing about this ancient stuff.

    Lee, There are no pics of the back of these printers. How do I know it has the DB25 and not the Centronix 36 pin? Some 2300's say USB and Parallel... How do you know it will be the one that works? (DB25)
    I had the nations problems figured out one night while on blah blah blah........ huh?

    Perry, I can't remember right now, I don't know if I specified that or ordered the cable separately. I do remember calling them and talking to them about it and explaining what I was trying to do...

    I think I can use a cable like this to run the printer I'm looking at. The printer has parallel input but it has the 36 pin.

    The LPT1 printer cable from a PC was the 25Pin DSUB to 36 pin Centronics connector as a standard Perry. This looks like the one that was used for this purpose.

    Most all parallel port printers have the Centronics connector on them. Does the AP have the 25P DSUB?
