Your port information should be in "system Information" if your using XP.
Go to:- Start-
           Programs-
           Accessories-
           System Tools-
           System Information-
           Components-
           Ports-
           Parallel.
You should then find the port address

Thanks Jim, I found the info there thats looks much more like the info that i needed, 9c00 address, I changed it in Mach but i have no way to test the port tonight, i brought the computer home because i thought i was in for a long night. Unless you guys have some way to test it otherwise. Thanks to both you and Hood for your Help on this matter.

Best Jp

Hood,
I tried what you suggested and it didn't work. One of the problems I'm had was the number I put into the port setting was not what you showed. What I have under resources type (I/O range setting (FCF8-FCFF) I am using a Quatech SPPXP-100 Express card in the LPT3 port. As you can see all I have is letters basicly... any help would be appreciated... Thanks

John
 Brett has probably got you sorted but if not then you want to put FCF8 as your port address.

 You could put a voltmeter on one of the pins to ground and set it up in ports and pins and toggle it High/Low and you should see the voltage change.
