Default Parallel to USB cable on FreeBSD? + virtualisation?

Hi all,

I noticed that I don't have a parallel port on my new computer, but I still use a HP 5P Laser Jet on the parallel port.

So I thought I could buy a converter for this. However, I wonder if this will work under FreeBSD.

Also, if I connect my printer to the host, will I be able to use it in a virtual machine? Something I maybe want to do with my FreeBSD as guest os.

Greetings and thanks in advance!
