connecting HP LaserJet 1100 (small centronics) with Sweex Print Server PR001 (large centronics)

Hello,

I need to cennect my HP LaserJet 1100 to a Sweex Print Server PR001.

The HP LaserJet 1100 requires a small (!!) 36-pin male Centronics connector. The Sweex Print Server PR001 is a bigger 36-pin male centronics connector.

Does anyone know:
- if the HP LaserJet 1100 will function properly with a Sweex Parallel Print Server PR001?
- where to order a cable that connects the large print server male with the small LaserJet 1100 female? I couldn't find it yet...

Thanks in advance,

SJW

Hi,

after looking through some other threads it appears that the mini-centronics causes connection issues with USB converters as well.

It looks as if my solution will be the Centronics To Mini Centronics Adapter (SW-2104) but I couldn't find it on Dutch webshops yet.

If anyone knows where to buy this adapter in The Netherlands, I would be very happy.

Thanks

I know the adapter in the link below works when many of them do not. Although in the US the company I believe ships worldwide.

David,

Thanks for your reply.

I expect just the adapter will be sufficient for me because I need to connect with a print server that has a large centronics while the LaserJet 1100 has a mini-centronics.

Therefore I hope the SW-2104 will do it (http://sewelldirect.com/centronicstomini.asp).

Do you know if the LaserJet 1100 will accept connection with a print server anayway?

Thanks again
