Convert a standard parallel printer into a shared network printer over a 10/100 Ethernet network. The PM1115P2 Ethernet to Parallel Network Print Server lets you convert a standard parallel printer into a shared network printer over a 10/100Mbps network. Providing network printing access allows you to share a single printer among multiple network connected computers, while also avoiding the added costs and inconveniences of purchasing printers for each workstation or area.

This compact, lightweight Ethernet print server connects directly to the Centronics port on your printer, for a discreet solution that doesn't require a cable between your printer and the device - simply connect the device to the network using an RJ45 cable. The ability to position your printer anywhere on the network does away with the need for a dedicated print server PC, saving resources and avoiding performance bottlenecks.

The parallel print server can have you up and running in minutes, using either a remote web-based or Windows based installation wizard. The print server offers broad operating system compatibility and works with a wide variety of parallel printing devices for easy installation into mixed environments, and also supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for remote monitoring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steady and Reliable I had heard good things on the reliability of the print server here and I'm happy to say that so far it works exactly as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as described Installed via a Win7 desktop to attach an HP 4100tn printer to home network to replace a failed Jetdirect card. The installation was faultless and took maybe 5 minutes total. Nice unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well to get my aging HP6L back on my network I used to have the wireless version of this, and it worked well...until it didn't (can't remember if it died, or wireless changed, or what). So then I used a Centronics to USB and just shared it from a machine...but recent Win10 updates seem to have killed that. So bought this aging beauty (on eBay) and it works great. The Setup program doesn't work but I don't know what you'd use it's easy to set an IP on your machine to get to the web interface, change it to your network settings, and away we go. Cheaper than replacing my printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Up and Running I purchased the PM1115P2 Print Server in order to get my old HP 5p Laserjet back in use. Hooked it up to my home network and after 3 years on the bench it's up and running again. Thanks StarTech. I would have given 5 stars but the reset button is not in a user friendly position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working fine now! Need better instructions for Mac I was not a breeze to set up. After several attempts to follow available instructions for Mac, I finally resorted to contacting tech support. The support staff was friendly and patient. Really excellent. They helped me set up the device in a jiffy, but really, if your provided complete instructions for Mac, the call wouldn't have been necessary. It was all a matter of plugging the print server into the correct port while setting the different configurations. Here's the missing outline: 1.) In System Prefs>Network, make note of the IP address setting for an Ethernet port, then manually configure the IP address for the port to match the print server's IP address and subnet mask but with a different final set of numbers for the IP. 2.) Connect the print server to the Mac Ethernet port you just configured. 3.) Open a browser and go to the IP address to open the print server settings interface and under TCP/IP settings, configure the print server IP and subnet mask to match your router, but with a different final set of numbers than any other device on your wireless network. Save and restart. 4.) Unplug the Ethernet cable from the computer and return the address for the port to its previous settings (critical if you use this port to connect your computer to your router!). In your browser, go to the address you configured for the print server, the print server interface should open and show it's new address. 5.) Now you can connect your printer to the print server via USB and follow the StarTech video for adding your printers!
