configuring the parallel port
Posted on 1997-12-04
In the CMOS setup (upon turning computer on and pressing
DEL) there is an option to configure the parallel port.
In this option one can select SPP, EPP, ECP, ECPEPP, with
sub-selections 1.7, 1.9 (e.g. ECPEPP1.7). Moreover there is
an option to assign an address to IRQ7 (378) or IRQ5 (278).
I have a B&W video-camera (Connectix) and an HP laser
printer which I would like to plug in (alternatively)
to the Parallel port.
Which configuration should I choose? What do these codes
(e.g. ECPEPP) mean? The motherboard manual explains nothing.
Can you help?
