You route either physical or logical networks with a router. Some switches can be called routers.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

You can use an intelligent T Switch.

These detect print arriving and switch and hold for a predetermined time on the incoming port concerned.

They are available for:-

RS232 (9 or 25 pin) - Parallel - usb ports.

With (the larger the better) or without buffer

2 or 4 ports, maybe more

Googling 'rs232 t switch' produces hits such as:-

As an example see Switch 85643.

As a matter of interest, where are you based? I am in Hammersmith, West London.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
