Joe, Epson tech support told me they don't support PowerPort Juggler 
or the Keyspan serial port PCI card, only direct serial connections 
to the printer or modem port. Of course the Epson software can't tell 
if you connect two printers through an A-B serial switch.

The problem seems to be that Epson's software isn't "Comm Toolbox 
savy" which is something I believe the Keyspan and Momentum products 
rely on.
