XHC-MK6-ET Ethernet Motion Card with MPG using LPT port
« on: April 23, 2018, 04:23:28 AM »
Hello everyone.
I am building a 5 axes wood milling CNC. First, I used China LPT Break-out Board, and I made an MPG using LPT port too. They worked correctly at the same time, but there was some noise. So I swap it for MK6-ET card, but my MPG not work.
My computer has an LPT card on-board and an PCIexpress to LPT card.
I just wonder that whether or not I can use Ethernet port and any LPT port at the same time with this card?
Anyone can help me?

Unfortunately you cannot use Ethernet and LPT Port at the same time.

maybe you can use two spare Inputs on the Controller for MPG A/B and do the selection
via Screen Buttons ?
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Thanks for your reply. Could you explain more clearly the reason why they do not come together, because of Mach3 or computer? This is the first time I use Ethernet card.

That is a backup idea if there is no way.  Thank you.

Mach3 will not support both LPT and Ethernet options operating at the same time.
