  • One cable with a DB-25 Male connector on one and and a DB-25 Male connector on the other end (both end connectors are the same). This cable connects the center connector of the switch box to the computer's parallel port connector. (see Printer Cables )
  • One cable having a DB-25 Male connector on one end and a Centronics 36-pin Male connector on the other end. The DB-25 Male connector plugs into the "A" plug on the back of the switch box. The other end (the centronics connector) plugs into the back of the first printer.
  • One cable having a DB-25 Male connector on one end and a Centronics 36-pin Male connector on the other end. The DB-25 Male connector plugs into the "B" plug on the back of the switch box. The other end (the centronics connector) plugs into the back of the second printer.
