Title: lpt port mode
Post by: howling60 on May 01, 2007, 09:19:09 AM
Hey there all!

Working on setting up a "new" machine for Mach3 usage...  was just going through the bios... and i have the option of setting the LPT port mode...  factory default is IBM PS/2...  is currently set to "ECP" or Extended Capability Port protocol....

any thoughts/ reccomendations on this?  I am thinking i will do the PS/2 compatibility mode, as i imagine it stands less chance of screwing with Mach's control over the parallel port.

Thanks in advance for any input!

ah, ok... i shall try that out then...  just wasn't sure if those modes might cause... well.. issues.  After i get the machine re-loaded w/software & such, i'll see how it does.

Thank you for the input!
