How to emulate a SmartKey Parallel Dongle

Hello!

I have a EUTRON SmartKey Dongle which I need to emulate as the software is to be transfered onto a machine that does not have a Parallel Port.

Migrating to a USB Dongle is not possible as USB Ports are kept disabled for safety/security reasons.

Please help.

Thank You.

Appears you are not the only one with this problem.
If you simply put "EUTRON Smartkey emulator" into Google search box - there are a fair number of solutions already implemented.

Hope you find something.

Don't know EUTRON System, but worth trying to use with Parrallel to Serial converter, into Serial port on PC. Pretty sure they are still available at reasonable cost. Should work as long as Sotware, and Dongle are not too sophisticated. If software is designed only to look at hardware Parralel Port will not work, but then neither will any other emulation, or substitute.

Sir, The computer does not have a free serial port. Hence I must emulate.

Sir,
I have already done that. NoDongle.bix and Dongla.net have not given any solutions.

Why not buy a PCI card with a parallel port?

Make sure you get one that does the correct DOS interrupts and memory addresses.

Here's an example of one.

You can not emulate hardware dongle key (which purposed to prevent hack/crack/illegal). However, you can contact vendor to obtain USB dongle type and that should solve problem on PC which has serial and parallel ports. Other choice, get network licence key so you can share software over network within your company.
