I need to re-use a very old dot-matrix printer for listing paper (the stuff with perforations up each side).
It has an 18-pin SCSI female connector. I would very much like to run it from an existing RJ-12(?) Ethernet port.
My Windows 7 32-bit has the driver but no SCSI port so I am wondering what I need to connect the printer.
( My Canon inkjet printer has an Ethernet cable plugged in networked via my broadband switch.) My 22 year old laser printer uses a USB to SCSI adapter cable but for reasons of space and lack of any more free USB ports I would prefer the Ethernet solution.
Is this possible?
If you need any more details I will do my best to supply them.

Hi,

This is not something I have heard of I'm afraid. It's certainly not something we stock currently. There does seem to be some mention of them on Mac forums but I'm afraid these are pretty old.
