:tazz:

I just started with a new company and I access my mail etc through a Windows 2000 server. My printer (CANON PIXMA MP780) has only a UBS port connection. MIS told me that I need to use a parallel connection in order to printer. I don't want to buy a new printer.

Please help.

first...do you mean USB....second who is MIS...third...as long as the printer is supported on 2000...you shouldn't have a problem printing from a USB printer..

could you describe exactly what you mean by you can't print?

Sorry,

The head IT guy (management info systems) when setting me up with the network from home said that I would have to set up my printer with a parallel printer cable/connection. He said he always has problems with people printing remotely from the server with a printer set up with a UBS port connection.

My printer only has one printer port set up for a UBS connection. He told me to by another printer.

This seems crazy. The server I connect to from home is WINDOWS 2000.

If anybody has any idea, you would be saving me a lot of trouble.

Thanks in advance.
