Hi,
what sort of controller? I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like that.

Need to know:
1) What PC and OS?
2) What controller (parallel port or otherwise)?
3) What stepper drivers?

Hi,
given that you have a laptop running a 64 bit OS then you MUST have an external motion controller,
a parallel port wont work.

I need more info, what controller?
Do you have manufacturers documentation?

I don't do 'crystal ball'.

Hi,
looks like you have  GRBL controller. This is a Mach forum and I doubt you'll find any information of use for
such a controller.

May I suggest having a look at YouTube at both Mach3 and GRBL clips, you may note the differences.
Mach is useful for large machines in a way that GRBL is not.
