Rickard, you comment that the HP needs a special null model cable? Do you know how this is different from a normal null modem cable?
I rescued a 7856B from the garbage at work and am looking to be able to use it as both a pen plotter and a vinyl cutter. I have A null modem cable, but am concerned about whether or not it will work.
As I can't send PMs, can you give me some pointers on converting this?
I got Dr.Stika and have started messing with it. Cool program.
I would appreciate any advice you might have. I remember using plotters back in highschool and being fascinated with them. In the last few years, I have wished that I had one for doing arcade projects, and now I am really excited to get one.
