Absolutely. That's why, when my (one and only instance of the) LPT 
interface broke after 15+ years, I got me a XS1541. That includes IEEE488, 
serial IEC, userport connectors, and USB (serial) to connect to the PC. 
Just haven't gotten around writing some firmware for the AVR yet...
So currently I'm using the C2N232...
