Hello, I have a 2000 Xp computer and a 98 windows computer. I want to connect them in a working manner to a switch box so I can manually switch when neccessary.The printer uses USB cable. The 2000 XP uses USB cable connection from printer. The 98 windows uses parallel (25 male pin) cables from printer to computer. What type switch box do I need. (Is there a part number) and where are they available.
Thanks, Steve
