Centronics to LG02 cable?

Centronics to LG02 cable?

Post by James Harv » Fri, 25 Aug 1995 04:00:00



Has anyone here ever connected an LG02 printer (parallel interface only)
to a Centronics (i.e. PC) parallel interface?  We got the specs for the
old DEC cable and the Centronics interface and tried to make our own but
so far no luck.
