    hello

    i have just got myself a new hp 2200 laserjet and i am having problems printing large files to it, i beleive this is because i have a ext freecom CDRW running from the parallel port already, the printer then connecting thru this.
    this is the 2nd printer i have had this problem with, so i am now tryign to work around the problem
    so i thought i would connect the printer via the com1 port, there appears to be a settign in printers to do this.
    firstly is this possible if so what do i have to do to get it to work?
    as i cannot get it to print
    and as i am running NT4 i cannot use the USB connection on the printer

    Did you try disabling the bi-directional communication, or changing the type of printer interface in the BIOS of your computer?

    Just realized that you are out of the UK. I don't know what a parallel card would run over there.
