Parrallel Port configaration
« on: December 17, 2006, 01:11:19 AM »

I have just set up mach3 to my machine but the axis's only travel in one direction no matter what i tell them to do.I checked the system with another user and it ran his machine perfect, He told me he had to install a second Parrallel port card to get his to work.
I have seen that in the bios the parrallel port can be set up as an ECP, EPP< etc.
Is this the problem, does the Mach3 need one of these to run properly.???
Secondly, I down loaded the latest Mach3 version 2, and could not get the dros to show a movement when i programed a MDI.
Is there something I ve missed, or is this a bug. 

Please Help

Hi, Rogerbsstt

Sounds like your Dir pins aren't working or setup wrong, check your dir pin numbers on your stepper board to parr. port.

If your steps are working the port should be ok, Check setting in Config,Ports & Pins, Motor Outputs.

Dir Port set to 1, Try changing the Dir LowActive setting state.

Post the type of stepper boards your using.
Sent you a PM.

Hope this Helps, Chip
