Beste Kees,

Thanks for your information, while opening the side I
learned that the drivers are not yet available.

PCL 5e (PCL 5 enhanced) was released on the HP LaserJet 4 in
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 7, 2010 1:41 AM PST

PCL 5e (PCL 5 enhanced) was released on the HP LaserJet 4 in October 1992 and added bi-directional communication between the printer and the PC and Windows fonts.
- the interweb.

Ok since the HP 1005 has a parallel port and understand PCL 5e print codes the hope is to call this a LaserJet 4 (LJ4).

Install a parallel printer card and call the printer on LPt1 a LJ4. Now connect the 1005 on that LPt1 and hope it all works.

http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/6192-hp-laserjet-4-driver.html tells how to get the driver.

The printer server solution.

ADVANCED!!! I will only offer this as a guide.

Install some new Linux like UBUNTU and add the 1005 there then share that printer across the network. CALL THIS PRINTER A LJ4 everywhere.
