No, don’t use the parallel port cable, just load up your Mach3 and use the same setup. There is a 400 something that works on Ethernet that is what I used. I Am Not an expert but it worked for me.

I used this with Mach3 and on Windows 7 Pro - UC400ETH ethernet motion controller   CNC Drive has a auto configure wizard on their website and they also sell the UC100.

The spindle motor is not a stepper, its more than likely a 3 phase off a VFD. I do not think the poster knows what he has. My advice still holds. If its pre wired to the VFD then it either starts Forward or Reverse as set by the gcode. The direction is set either M03 or M04.

Nothing issue about wiring. The problem is about a software. How can i get about KX1 profile for my machine or parameter about kx1

   Sorry I have no answer for you. My question, its a milling machine do you plan to tap holes or thread parts?  If not just reverse the wires like I suggested and move on. The direction of the spindle rotation can be changed in your gcode but its its running backwards when it should be forward rotation thats the wiring.

M03 is forward direction or CW, M04 is reverse direction or CCW I think your getting those confused.

single phase
It the spindle 3 phase or do you know, if you have a VFD its 3 phase.

Outside of Vista, Windows 10 anything is the worst system for Mach3. Install it all on a Windows 7 Pro 64 and it will work.

Is the machine 3 phase or the spindle 3 phase?

Do you have a 3 phase spindle? If so why would you want to reverse the rotation? If its rotating in the wrong direction it needs to be reversed with the power off of course on your VFD output. Swap any two motor leads. If you need it reversed via gcode sorry I can not help but I am assuming you just need one direction for milling, for tapping and threading yes you need reverse.

Just wondering how much experience the OP has in electronics, wiring and building CNC machines?
