Thanks for your input. I guess for now I'll stick with it as it is.

It outputs from the pc through a serial port. The motors are brushless dc servos.
The servo impact tech claims it's not step and direction. I was surprised to hear that,
since it's sending pulses, (even from the pendant without the PC on) I assumed it is step and direction.
If not step and direction, what else could the old dos control software be?

Is there any reason why mach 3 could not drive older controls formerly driven by dos software?
It seems to me if you know the pin assignments of the old controller you should be able to
drive it with Mach. Or is this wishfull thinking?
 I have an old Servo Impact 2 machine, nice little machine but old controls from the late 1990's
