Works with Linux

Connected HP LaserJet 4L printer to a computer with Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.1, which automatically detected the printer and printing worked. No configuration and no disk was required.

Works (with a patch from HP)

Installed cable and tried every which way to get the printer to work..My ancient but trusty HP 712c inkjet refused to spring to life. Finally, thanks to the expert guidance and patience of the StarTech rep Curtis, we found the answer. In brief, it involved installing a patch described on the HP website that was necessary for this model as well as several other vintage HP printers to work with this cable. See below. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-All-in-One-Software-Drivers/Deskjet-710-720-810-820-1000-Series-printers-Patch-for-64/m-p/203377#U203377 The patch worked like a charm and I hope to get another dozen years from my old reliable HP 710 using StarTech's cable. Thanks StarTech for having such great support. Kudos to Curtis for hanging in there with me. Ira
