Using Macintosh Interface Boards
If you are planning to install the LocalTalk board, you will also
need two LocalTalk Locking Connector Kits (DIN-8 version).
Attach one connector box to the AppleTalk interface on the
printer and the other to the printer port on the Macintosh.
Then attach the LocalTalk cable between the two connector
boxes. For more information, see the instructions that came
with the connector kits.
If you install the Ethernet board connected to a thin coaxial
(10BASE2) cable, and the printer is the last device on the
network, you need to obtain a 50-ohm terminator. The
Ethernet transceiver is included on the
so you do not need an adapter box for the printer.
Using the PC Serial Interface Board
Before you install the serial interface board in your printer,
follow the instructions that come with the board for setting
baud rate and parity. Refer to your computer documentation
for information about matching the board's settings to your
computer system. You may also need to set the board's
handshake timing, error handling, and other data transfer
