HP 4Plus 9-pin Pinouts

HP 4Plus 9-pin Pinouts

Post by Steve Ryd » Sat, 03 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I recently upgraded hardware and AIX level (from 4.1.5 to 4.3) and
have now a non-functional HP 4P printer.  It worked just fine before
the upgrade and now won't work at all - save for a lovely 600dpi test

I have obtained a cable from HP (part # HP2933A) which is a db9-db25
cable.  I am hoping someone can provide me with the signal
configuration on either end of this cable (or at least the 9 pin end)
so that I know where I'm going astray.

Of course, if someone can shed further light on HP 4P specific
installations, I'd be most grateful ;)  The printer, by the way, is
installed on a 128-port adapter.
