Just rename it to jam1962.xml and it should then accept it.

I had a look through the xml and only thing I see is you have an output set to pin 18, pin 18 is a gnd pin so you cant use that. I dont think it will mess with things but you never know.
 I dont have a computer here set up with a PP so will have to wait until tomorrow to grab the PP I have at the workshop for testing, if you dont hear from me by this time tomorrow shout again as I will likely have forgotten :D

Just built the old comp up on the desk and loaded Mach and your xml. Had to change the port to suit the standard address of the onboard but thats the only change I made. I rigged up a PP cable with a LED hooked to Pin1 and Gnd pin and restarted your profile. LED was on as expected then went to MDI and did a M3, LED went out as expected. I have restarted a few times and MDI right away and its always worked, wonder if it is a port problem on your computer?

I was just out to the shop and the darn thing was doing OK.  Restarted everything and again OK.  I dont know, the port may very well be the problem.  If it starts acting up again I will swap it to port 2 and see then.  Thanks for all your help.

Someone had a similar problem a few weeks ago. But if they did an M5 before the M3, it would work. I told them to put M5 in their initialization string, and it fixed the problem. You might want to try it.
