It depends on whether the printer is a serial model or a twinax model.
If it's a serial model, it's a simple matter of setting the buad rate
and connecting it via a serial cable--the printer will do ProPrinter

If it's twinax, it'll be much more trouble than it's worth to get it
working with anything other than AS/400 stuff.
