    USB - Parallel convertor with jetdirect print server.

    I have an old printer setup in Maths area which is parallel only which is now BER (beyond econimcal repair), I was wondering if a USB to Parallel convertors will work with a jetdirect printer server.

    As to purchase a new cheap HP laser printer, they are USB only.

    Thanks.

    A usb to parallel converter allows you to connect a parallel printer to a computer via it's usb ports not the other way around.

    You could always get a USB print server like this one: Netgear PS121

    Thanks for the advice guys!!!

    Money is tight, so might relocate a printer from somewhere.
