Thank you. That seems to be the misleading point. In the main config page, there are two possible entries for LPT ports; say 1 and 2.

In the ports and pins page, I'm using a port number, say 1, to talk to one BoB connected to the UC300. The missing bit: this "1" is NOT connected to the connector numbered "1" on the UC 300 but on the second.  I agree that there is no "rule" that forces anyone to number "ports" and " associated connectors" in a coherent manner, but one would think ...

Documentation is not coherent, in my modest opinion.

cheers, Philippe

The port numbers on the UC300 are the numbers you enter in Mach3. If you enter a port number of 1 in Mach3, it will indeed be for port 1 on the UC300.
