Talk to your local e-recycler and pick up an HP jetdirect print server.
Try another brand if you like but the HP's have just worked all the time.
It's hard to find new devices that support parallel ports.

What kind of plotters? I do not know how plotters talk to computers
either, but maybe you could describe the current setup and give us
some clues?

I have used such a print server to drive an old parallel-port printer.
It worked pretty well.
