Title: New Computer port address issue
Post by: mechfx on November 08, 2017, 06:00:49 AM
Hi all,
Just upgraded to a new computer since a hard drive fail. hence no old XML or custom screen files.
Running Mach 3 on a 3 axis plasma table. Windows XP.
New computer didn't have a parallel port so running a card.
I didn't install the previous system so I am slowly learning what is required to make it work again.
I have managed to get the table running but the x axis is now outputting through the z channel and there is no z axis output anywhere.
I read the port address via the device manager.
E stop and plasma trigger relay output seem to be working.
All cabling and motors are working (I swapped them to a channel that was operating and they responded correctly)

Can anyone guide me where to look next ?
