LPT configuration

This dialog box displays the LPT mode and port.

Click a mode in which LPT can be run. The default mode is ECP/EPP High Speed. If you are having problems with your LPT connection, set the mode to Bidirectional 8bit or Bidirectional 4bit. The connection works in any mode. For the best performance, use ECP/EPP High Speed. The next time that you create a boot disk, the mode is reset to the default ECP/EPP High Speed.
Click a port through which to connect. If you have multiple parallel ports and want to connect using a port other than the default LPT1, use the LPT port option to specify the port into which your cable is plugged. If you cannot get a connection with the default LPT port, you can connect to a specific port.
