http://serverfault.com – I have the following situation I have an Ethernet only HP Printer which I need to connect to a parallel port PC. Could I use an External JetDirect card to connect my Ethernet printer to a Parallel port PC? --UPDATE-- There is an Ethernet port on the PC but it's being used to connect to the Domain. So I can't unplug the PC's ethernet. The room which has the PC has only 1 Ethernet port so we can't connect 2 devices to the network simulataneously. The Printer has an Ethernet port only so I can't connect it via Parallel port cable. But if I can bridge the Ethernet port to Parallel port that (HowTos)
