I'm new here and just started working with parallel ports. I'd like to ask
- Does any one know where can I download the IEEE-1284 documentations?
- Where can we download PLIP?
- How many protocols do we have now. Where are the documents?
- In one of the threads I've read on the URL bellow, from Roger
http://gear.torque.net/parport/archive/hist/1341.html, it is said that
HostClk can be connected to PeriphClk, HostACK --> PeriphACK. In my opinion,
it works, but we have a problem with nReverseRequest and nACKReverse.
Therefore, I checked in the
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/PLIP.txt. In this document,
the -STROBE (pin 1, active low) is connected with BUSY (pin 9, active high);
the -AUTO_FD (pin 14, active low) is connected with PAPER_ERROR (pin 12,
active high). Is this right? How does it work?
Thank you for any hint or idea.
