Parallel Port help
« on: May 08, 2017, 12:52:16 PM »
Hiya,

Super newbie with mach3 and cnc's in general. My friend help my set mine up last summer , I had to partition my hard drive to get windows vista and install a parallel port. I've just tried setting it back up myself again so I can play around with it but it doesn't seem to want to move the cnc along any axis. I'm fairly certain I've set the outport and inport pins properly. As well has used the proper port address, but I'm not entirely sure. Are there any other common reasons it may not be working I should look into?

Hi,
can you run 'DriverTest.exe' in the Mach3 folder? While not ironclad its a good test to see if the parallel port installed correctly.
