iMac & HP LaserJet 4000
Anyone else out there using a LaserJet 4000 with their iMac? I went and bought a parallel print to USB port cable and connected them, but it only prints intermittently. I've been unable to determine why it hangs up and what gets it going again.

I use very old HP laserjets and I've never had a problem with drivers however I always use IP printing. If the 4000 supports it you may have been better off buying a jetdirect card off of eBay than the USB-Printer parallel cable
edit: Just looked and the drivers are included in OS X 10.6.6

HP Laserjet 4000 printing intermittently
I am a new iMac user and I'm having issues printing with my HPLJ 4000. It takes the longest time to spool and gather data. I am waiting several minutes between pages. Does anyone know why this is happening? I printed out the configuration and it appears that it has a JetDirect installed but I have a parallel cable connected.
I have Googled this topic and the solutions from people are over my head. I would appreciate someone giving me a layperson's explanation of what I need to do to get this resolved.

I have an LJ4000 with a JetDirect NIC and it works like a charm with OS X 10.6.7
Connect a network cable between the JetDirect card and your router, print a configuration page if you need the IP for OS X.
The parallel port was dead a decade ago.
My iOS devices are not jailbroken.
