Topic: Parallel Port help
« on: October 13, 2018, 08:48:22 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,
I presume you are running, or at least trying to run a parallel port?

Post a screen shot of the results of DriverTest.exe (in the Mach3 folder)
