     Setting Mach 3 Port to PCI parallel port address
« on: May 17, 2010, 01:25:57 AM »   



Newby here, I'm unable to communicate to my Router due to a port address problem with Mach 3.

I have a four year old Dell desktop that did not have a Parallel port in it, and so I have installed a manhattan PCI parallel port and installed the software.

This port does not allow re mapping to a legacy port.

Indeed i have tried two other cards, a Sunix and another unbranded both of which state in their manual that they cannot be remapped to legacy ports under windows XP

Mach 3 wants the legacy address of Ox378, but allows a one line modification.

The properties \resources\ of my PCI LPT1 card show
i/o range DCE8-DCEF
i/o range DCFO-DCF7

What do I put in the one line to replace Ox378 in Mach 3 Pins and Ports?
Also, no matter what i type, it always ends up prefixed Ox.

Confused and frustrated

Please help

It is probably best if you only post your question once.
