NOTE: The HP DeskJet 850C, 855C, 1200C, 1600C, 1600CM, and HP CopyJet printers need to use the HP LaserJet PrinterPal Model # C2971A because the Parallel extension cable is needed for connectivity limitations with the HP DeskJet printer Models.
NOTE: Any of the M series Printers listed above will work as a receive only fax when the printer is connected to a Macintosh computer. This is because the software is PC Windows based software. Also, the printer needs to be in the PCL print mode or be able to auto switch between PCL and PostScript (R). At the time of this update, the HP DeskJet 400 printer has not been tested for compatibility with either model.
