NewDeal Hot Tip 1614

[Hot Tips for...] GEOS.INI

GEOS.INI: [parallel]

The [parallel] category defines the parallel ports available on the system. If a port is not listed here, NewDeal will not recognize it. Multiple instances of the single key in this category may be used.

port<n> = <level>
Level 7 (or 5 in the case of LPT 2) means the software talks to the port directly through the hardware interrupt (IRQ). Level 1 means the software is using BIOS controls and 0 (zero) means the software is using DOS interrupts. This key is normally set from Preferences, Computer.


port1 = 7
port2 = 5
