Serial interface?  I was scratching my head about 1/2 second after I
hit send on that.  I honestly haven't seen a serial interface on a
printer in damn near a decade, and I can't really say that I miss it.
 Console ports on switch/router/firewall are bad enough.  But I
thought I remembered HP having DB-15 and OKI having the DB-9 but it
was too late at that point :)
