Subject: FreeBSD based, standalone, print server
The network card on my HP 4300 is definitely dead. All I am left with is a... parallel port!
But the printer is still working fine, printing fast and in good quality.
I don't want to invest in a new network card though, while I have a bunchg of old systems lying around.
1) I set-up a small FreeBSD box, with printer spooler, and all my
2) I find a solution to bridge the parallel port and the ethernet
port. This is more exciting and I keep the quota and spooling on
the original print server.
Any cue for the option 2?

You might be able to dig up a network to parallel port jet direct box fairly cheap from a well known auction site.
