'Parallel port suggestions ?'

Me again,
       Just a quick question about parallel ports as they pertain to PIC
programmers.
       My computer has an on-board parallel port with 4 options in the BIOS.

1). SPP, which I think is " Standard Parallel Port " and is not
bi-directional.
2). EPP or " Enhanced Parallel Port " which I think is bi-directional.
3). ECP or " Extended Capabilities Port " I have no idea what this is.
4). EPP+ECP obviously a combination of the last two.

       Does anyone have a suggestion as to which I should be using ??
       Thanks.

If you want to connect a "normal" printer, use SPP.

If your printer says in its manual, that it supports also EPP or ECP,
then use them.

If you connect something else, read the manual carefully. If they
don't mention anything else than "compatible printer port", use SPP.

A ZIP drive or something like this can deal with EPP and ECP.

regards,

Wolfram

The port on my M/B has similar capabilities. I use the standard port
option, which works fine with Michael Covington's new programmer. All
the parallel port programmers were intended for use with the older types
of port, AFAIK.
