Do the readouts in Mach  show movement when you jog?

Hi there!

I'm having the same problem. Mach3 seems to work correctly but the driver does not receive any signal from the parallel port. The parallel port acts as if the address is not the right one.
I've tried different addresses from the parallel port's properties but nothing happens. Is there any way to discover the correct address of the port other than resourses tab in properties?
