Re: panasonic kxp6300 laser printer. how
Use a USB cable if your pc & printer has the ports.. But make sure you install the software before connecting the printer. Usually the software will prompt you are the right time to connect the USB cable & when to turn on the printer.

Yes. It should work fine, but there are a few IFs:
IF the printer is still good...you said it's an older printer. Also, does the printer have a USB port, or is it so old, it only has a parallel port? Some newer computers do not have serial or parallel ports.
IF you don't have a parallel port on the PC, and you have no USB port on the printer, you can purchase a parallel to USB adapter.
You also may have to go the manufacturer's web site to download the drivers for the printer.
IF there are no printer drivers for your newer Operating System, you are up the proverbial ******* creek. I have a hunch you are concerned about how to hook it up because of the above mentioned parallel - USB port issue. The adapter will fix that.
I have a similar situation. Trying to print from a HP LaserJet 4 using a parallel cable to USB. It will not recognize the printer. What is the installation setup or what is the trick to get it to print?
It can be done tested by Thoo personally 6L printer prints well on vista too The printer end should be connected to 25 pin parallel cable, converted to the USB on the notebook end of the wiring To solve your printing problems locate vista driver, since i have tested vista works fine on HP 6L printers make sure you select the correct O/S and assign in to the USB virtual port 05 http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=14974&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodClassId=-1&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25476 After installing my vista can print perfectly well on test printout Advise from http://www.bebo.com/andythoo Technical support specialist: Thoo Wai Kiat
