Parallel ports

Parallel ports

 

Workstation upto 6.5 allows max 3 parallel ports. This ports can use physical devices or files.

At the moment I do not know if Workstation 7 also allows 3 - maybe the same regression as with serial ports occured here - still need confirmation.


 

parallel0.present = "true"                  
parallel0.startConnected = "true"           
parallel0.fileType = "file"           
parallel0.fileName = "parport2txt.txt"    

this settings use a textfile "parport2txt.txt" for the output
the device will start connected

 


 
parallel0.present =    "true"      
parallel0.startConnected = "true"           
parallel0.bidirectional = "true"           
parallel0.fileType = "device"      

this settings use a automatically detected host-device
the device will start connected
the device uses bidirectional mode


 
parallel0.present = "true"           
parallel0.startConnected = "true"           
parallel0.bidirectional = false           
parallel0.fileType = "device"      
  
this settings use a automatically detected host-device
the device will start connected
the device does not use bidirectional mode


parallel0.present = "true"               
parallel0.startConnected = "true"           
parallel0.bidirectional = "true"           
parallel0.fileType = "device"           
parallel0.fileName = "LPT1"    

this settings use host-device LPT1
the device will start connected
