TestPort (960411) Copyright (C) Micro Solutions Inc., DeKalb Il. 1994-1996 Engineering's Parallel Port Diagnostic Wizard Utility. This is a diagnostic tool for use under the direction of Micro Solutions staff. It is designed to provide a means of detecting known parallel port chips for diagnostic purposes. This program should only be needed if a parallel port that is designed under IEEE-1284 specifications for EPP (Enhanced Parallel Ports) does not properly function in EPP mode. usage : TestPort [options] -unidir Unidirectional -bidir Bidirectional -epp EPP -ecp ECP For the most specific results when running TESTPORT.EXE, you should: First disconnect any parallel port devices (including Backpacks and printers) from your computer's parallel port. Then, turn the computer off (power off) and perform a "clean" reboot with no CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT. The easiest way to do this with DOS 6.x is to press the F5 (Function-5) key when the words "Starting MS-DOS..." or "Starting PC-DOS..." appear on screen during boot. Under Windows 95, you can press the CTRL-F5 (Control - Function-5) key combination to boot directly to a C: prompt. Finally, run the TESTPORT program in the following ways: TESTPORT >c:\test1.txt <enter> (and) TESTPORT -EPP >c:\test2.txt <enter> (using the ">c:\test1.txt" will re-direct the output from the screen to a file in the root directory of C: called TEST1.TXT and TEST2.TXT.) You can then re-boot the computer, and FAX the TEST1.TXT and TEST2.TXT files to Micro Solutions Technical Support Fax:815.756.4986, or e-mail the results to: email@example.com. Make sure to include the following information: Your Name, Phone/Fax numbers, Exact Model of computer, Backpack 8-digit Serial Number, and EXACT problem description.Download Driver Pack
