existing parallel ports and is the recommended setting.

Determines whether or not the printer honors printer hardware initialization
requests from the computer
Notes:

The computer requests initialization by activating the Init signal from the
parallel port. Many personal computers activate the Init signal each time the
computer is turned on.

of strobe

On is the factory default setting.
This menu appears only if a standard or optional parallel port is available.

server that is attached to the printer using a parallel cable.

server through a parallel port.
Description
Sets the printer to automatically switch to PCL emulation when a print job received
through a serial port requires it, regardless of the default printer language
Notes:
On is the factory default setting.
When the Off setting is used, the printer does not examine incoming data.
When the Off setting is used, the printer uses PostScript emulation if PS
SmartSwitch is set to On. It uses the default printer language specified in the
Setup menu if PS SmartSwitch is set to Off.
