Hi

Can someone tell me please, does the network cable end of the grinch to pc interconnect cable have a standard network cable end on it?

IE could I just get a straight network cable, cut one end off and solder the wires in the correct order to a parallel adapter.
Or do I need to wire both ends.

You have it in one there Daemon, normal network cable will be fine.I just cut one of the connects of and put a DB25 plug on instead

I don't mean to hi-jack the thread but what it the longest you can make the cable. Mine is currently about 10 inches and makes testing difficult because it is so close to the computer.

I forget the max length, but I have two here that are 6' long that I use, no problems. I want to say you can go 25' but not 100% sure on that.
