Answers :

If you have a PARALLEL cabled printer, You need the same sized port on your PC.

\015\012There are adapters however, if you have a smaller SERIAL port.
\015\012And ones that are USB - or a combo one like the following....

\015\012My 812c (older) has a parallel cable and usb cable. Look for the Mini USB on the back of the printer, and all you would need is a cable like this - TYPE A to TYPE B
