I have also gotten it to work with the PCI4008A chip used on some PCI plug-in parallel port boards. Watch out for Comp USA, as they sell several different PCI parallel port boards under the SAME SKU number, and they have different chips. The ITE8875F chip does not work. I have also tried the NetMos board, and had no luck with that one, either. SIIG PCI parallel ports work well. These may have a configuration PROM on board that needs to be set for EPP mode using their DOS utility. Contact elson@pico-systems.com for more info on this procedure. SIIG PCI cards work, but SIIG's PCIe card
(and others that use the Oxford OXPCIe952 chip, such as Startech and Rosewill) do not work. They Syba PCIe card with the
NetMos 9900 chip works fine.

Watch out for Comp USA, as they sell several different PCI parallel port boards under the SAME SKU number, and they have different chips. The ITE8875F chip does not work. The NetMos MCS9705 is known not to perform EPP mode correctly. SIIG PCI parallel ports work well. These may have a configuration PROM on board that needs to be set for EPP mode using their DOS utility. Contact elson@pico-systems.com for more info on this procedure. SIIG PCI cards work, but SIIG's PCIe card
(and others that use the Oxford OXPCIe952 chip, such as Startech and Rosewill) do not work with older versions of LinuxCNC. Latest versions of LinuxCNC since
March, 2017 have this problem fixed. They Syba PCIe card with the NetMos 9900 or 9901 chip works fine.
