The new ZyXEL Elite modems have a parallel printer port on them.  An Elite can
be hooked up directly to a HP Deskjet/LaserJet/PCL-based printer.  The Elite
will then send all incoming faxes to the printer.  In effect, the printer will
become an incoming-only plain paper fax machine.  The computer is thus bypassed,
thereby removing the usual requirement for the computer to be turned on (to
receive faxes).


When the optional 2/4/8 Mb of RAM is installed, incoming faxes can be stored
in the modem itself.  The stored faxes can then be sent to the PC for futher
processing.

The modem will work on HP LaserJets and other PCL-based printers.  Postscript
printers are not *currently* supported (stay tuned!).
