Routing ethernet as a LPT port
Hi, I currently have a parallel port to ethernet (RJ45) adapter in order to control a certain device. The adapter sits in the motherboards parallel port and then the ethernet cable connects between the adapter and the device. However another computer doesn't have an parallel port which I want to move to, but does have a RJ45 port. A problem exists that the control software requires a parallel port... is it possible to trick the computer in thinking an ethernet port is a parallel port (some kind of ethernet I/O memory map to the parallel port address - 0x378)??
