    Replace the firewire board. I haven't seen a parallel port used in ages and it would be extremely slow to print to, the data throughput on parallel is tiny (2-4MB/s). Firewire is 480MB/s or faster with the newer specs.

    You will need to buy a new fire wire board, Mimaki doesn't work on a parallel port. You can buy a new board probably at your local computershop.

    succes!
