    Hi Nate,

    I had a look at your code, and it seems to me that you aren't accessing
    the econtrol register at all. I believe that you have to do so to change
    the direction of those bits. I've never done this via the ppdev
    interface, so I can't give you any specifics, but I'm pretty sure this
    is your problem.
