Question about Other Network Devices
I have a network only MFP printer (No Parallel, serial, or USB connection, just network plug (RJ45 I think). It used to be aon a windows 2003 network and worked great. My environment is now changed. I access the internet through a network router but am not a member of that network. I want to be able to use this printer with my PC, but am at a loss as to how to create a network environment where this is possible. any ideas as to what I can do. - Thanks
If you are no longer on that network that the printer is on and you can' t configure the router, setting up this printer will be next to impossible. If you know the network administrator, you might be able to work something out with the IT department if you explain you need it for a work related function

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.
Well, Printer Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook. You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector). The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.
Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.
Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.
I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.
