rm notebook printer port problem

  jeffp 00:25 11 Aug 2004

I have just aquired a rm notebook with 486 dx4 100 mhz cpu with windows 95 on which works great apart from the printer port which won't print. I have installed correct drivers but it just prints random chars and beeps alot. In dos mode it prints text without any spaces and in block capitals. The printer port works fine with laplink cause I have transferred loads of data back and forth using a parallel port cable, so I am not sure wether the printer port is broken or if there is something I have missed. if the port is broken how can laplink work okay. is there anyway to print from the notebooks serial port to my printer. my printer is an epson stylus 600 which has parallel and an applemac serial port.
