I suggest you to search for a parallel to serial converter. You may find it some computer store or built one with a microcontroller.

With this converter, you can see the text in any PC with some RS-232 terminal software(like windows hyperterminal).

Our system use HPIB  and microprint 45ch to convert signal from HPIB to Centronics (Parallel Interface).
Is this difference from narmal parallel port?
