Specs: Windows XP
Our new color laser printer has 3 connection ports (USB, Parallel, and ethernet) Is it OK to connect 2 computers to one printer...each using a different port on the printer?

The only way to find out is to try it. You are not going to do any damage if it doesn't work but I very much doubt if it will.

As it has an Ethernet port the obvious thing to do would be to connect it to a router or a switch and use it as a network printer.
