I have linux running with parport compiled into the kernel. I am using two
parallel ports, LPT1 under windows is connected to a zip drive and if I do
insmod ppa, I can mount and use this drive fine.
I also have an epson 760c printer connected to port LPT2 under windows. I
cannot get this to work under Linux. My questions are:
what device is this port /dev/lp0 or /dev/lp1?
do I need to add any parameters to the linux boot prompt to explicitly
identify this port with the printer i.e lp=0x...
If I do cat txt_file > /dev/port should I expect something to happen at the
Any help appreciated.
