Hello,

I'm looking for a long DB25 MF parallel port cable. I've found only 1.5m cables, and I own one, but it's too short, I need something 3m or longer. I've searched on eBay and Aliexpress and didn't find anything... I also have to give a call to my college because they might have one, but does anyone know where I could find such cable ? Or does anyone have one for sale ?

Thanks !

parallel port cables were not really designed to be used over more than 3m lengths.... You could make one yourself in a pinch

I used to have one that was about 4.5m but that ran a fanfold fed dot matrix printer ;-)

Thanks for the replies. I ended up finding a 2m extension. When I move to smooth steppers, I won't have issues finding cables anymore lol
