Dear all,

So far I have not found an answer to my question on the forum so I have finally decided to create a new topic (my apologies in advance if this is not new): for some weeks I have been looking for an USB adapter that enables my laptop to connect parallel port devices...the problem is that every single cable I have found it's just for printing purposes...except (I think) this one:

http://www.lindy.co.uk/usb-to-serial-an ... 42838.html

Basically my question is if someone can confirm this cable will create an standard LPT port which enables my laptop to connect any kind of parallel device (from a printer, to a PSoC IC programmer, etc) without problems.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Sergio

I can confirm this cable creates a LPT port and not USB printing support.

Can software dongles be used in this LPT port ?

Hi, I'm afraid we would not advise or support the use of software dongles with this unit.
