LPT port Address
« on: December 24, 2008, 04:11:53 PM »
I have a new computer that did not have an LPT port, so I added a card. When I run the GetPortAddress.exe it reports an address of &HDCA8.
In Mach3 what do I put in the Port #1, Port Address box?
Thanks,
Dave

Would think it would be DCA8 but you should be able to see it by going to device manager and checking the resources tab for that port.

Device Manager has I/O Range  DCA8 - DCAF
If I type in DCA8 in the Mach3 Port Address box and apply, it changes it to 0xdca8

I imagine that is the correct address as the default for Port1 is 0x378
