HP4L parallel port to USB adapter

Link to this post 09 Jul 09

Hello hackers,

i bought myself a new workstation at home and recognized the missing of a parallel port for my HP4L printer device. So I've been tought to buy an adapter that enables LPT over USB. I bought the adapter and it is not working.

The printer is an HP 4L Laserjet. Quite old, but still reliable and good. Does someone have a solution for this?

As I konw, all these adapters USB to LPT can't work under Linux and Mac, it just can run Windows platofrm.
