Can ECP port run G540 with mach3?
« on: January 02, 2011, 10:32:56 AM »
I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop computer. I went through the optimizing and it passes the driver test. Only question now is will it run a Gecko G540? It does not have a EPP parallel port. It only has Normal, ECP or Bidirectional. Is it absolutely necessary to have a EPP parallel port to run the G540 with Mach3?

I think Bi-Directional setting would  work, but its been a long time since I have used the Parallel Port with Mach ::)
