Hi wadenres,
have you run the driver test program? It is not an ironclad test that everything is
working but usually gives pretty good insight.
Also go to your device manager and confirm that the port numbering is correct.
Is there a reason you're using port 2?
On my PC port 1 is built in with what seems to be a widely used standard port address
and usually identical to the default port 1 address in Mach3. It was the first port I used
when starting out and had no issues with getting it to work.

My wife left with my best friend...

Mach is running fine, Port 2 is my Db25 card and has no driver issues and is suppoted by EPP mode.  Think I might scrap my comp and get a fresh comp running XP with a Db25 port built into the mother board which would give me LPT 1 for my default port.

The Machine is up and running.  Found a youtube video with the correct settings for my machine.  The one page set up that came with the machine was close but no ringer.  Scrapped my modified PC, picked up an XP 32 Bit PC with a parallel port entered the new settings and Bingo.  Thanks for all the input, everyone has been helpful.
