You will need a parrallel cable that supports IEEE standard 1284 and is not longer than 12 feet.
You can consult the online user guide available by clicking here
and go to page 1-8. If your laptop does not have a parrallel port you will need to purchase a usb to parrallel adapter cable like the one shown here
