Not all serial printers work with Cisco boxes. In particular,
we were interested in moving our Apple LaserWriters off direct lines on
one of our VAXes and putting them on a Cisco box so that they'd be more
accessible over our LAN. We were told that it wouldn't work because
the LaserWriters need to send data back to the host, and the Cisco serial
printer connection didn't support that direction of data flow.
