  No.  Only builtin parallel ports (and in some cases, an HP JetDirect
  interface) can be used.  Note that some older SGI systems do not have a
  builtin parallel port.

  The hinv(1M) command can be used to see if the system has a parallel
  port.

  Also, the 8-pin "serial" port on newer HP printers is *not* compatible with
  any SGI workstation or server.  The port is used for LocalTalk connections to
  Macintosh computers.
