The plotter is downstairs and the PC is upstairs approximately 25 feet from each other.
The original cable was a 20 foot. I added a 6 ft because of the difference in length needed to connect.
I also tried another computer with a different parallel cable located within 6 feet and I still do not get any communication.

The "other" 6 footer is a known good cable (centronix to DB25)from another setup.
I was going to try the usb, but if I remember right, this plotter only supports USB 1.0.
