no connection between the machine and pc, help please.
« on: April 28, 2013, 06:10:36 PM »
Hello,

today I tried to test my machine, if everything is OK, like, home, limit, relay etc. but I was surprised that there is no connection between the machine and the PC. there is no led for the limits and home. mach3 is well installed, I guess, I rebooted the PC, pulse is excellent. I used soundlogic XML file. I have a PC with xp installed, administrator.. nothing  respond...lol

I do not know what is going on...

thanks for help

I have also another  PC, but where win7 is installed. I do not know if mach3 will work well with.

I can not test it because i can not know the address of the parallel port. I have attached 2 files, pics of the resource of the PCI,
you  might help me to know which one I should use as well as its correct address.

Thanks
Robhi

The address to try on that other computer would likely be E800

really i need your help.

Thanks again

I have installed another PCI parallel port but I can not know the address, is written as the following:-
DFA0  - DFA7
DF98 - DF9F    this is the LPT2

DFE0 - DFE7
DFA8 - DFAF               LPT3

I do not know the exact address, I would like to try this, other wise I will change the PC.

another this, I am thinking that my be the PC that , port parallel that does not work?

thanks for your help
