Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer
I have an HP LaserJet 4 Plus printer. It has a serial and parallel port. I purchased a serial to usb cable in order to connect the printer to my iBook G4. I installed the software that came with the cable. I downloaded and installed a HP LaserJet 4 Plus driver for OSX for my computer. When I go through Printer Setup Utility and select USB to identify the printer, which is on and connected to the computer, the printer is not on the list.
Serial to usb is not plug and play so i don't believe this configuration will ever work.
parrallel to usb is plug and play 90% of the time.
purchasing and installing a port replicator is a 100% fix as long as the formatter on the printer is working properly. good luck!
