"different machine" means different hardware. This may be one of
those strange parallel ports that we have seen before...

There is one particular parallel port that vanishes if the printer is
on/off/attached. I can not remember which combination worked/failed.

We came up with a solution using a slightly different probe method.
Could you try the probe with the ZIP drive
powered/unpowered/unplugged and see if that makes any difference.
