Mach4 General Discussion / Newbie Port configuration question
« on: January 27, 2015, 04:32:27 PM »
I did try some searches first.

I bought a CNC fusion harbor frieght machine with hopes of learning how to use the machine.  My boys are really into CAD so it seems like a good tool to expand on that interest.

OK.  I have a Windows 7 machine, had to put a Parallel port card which is B800 port.  I have downloaded the demo of Mach4 per ARTSOFT's recommendation to see if I like it.  I can't seem to find where to get to the port configurator since a standard port is 378.  I believe that is why my machine will not even jog at this point.

Additionally I see in the port thread I need the Darwin driver but am having a hard time trying to figure out how to install it on the Mach 4 software.  That coul have something to do with it as well.

Please forgive my ignorance and stupidity once I get the feel for it I should be fine.  Just trying something new for my boys.

Thanks

Steve
