I have a 7i76e card, that I'm using for a robot, and I now want to add a 6th axis/joint to the 7i76e. I got a cheap parallel breakout card, which I want to link to the expansion connector P1. In GPIO, I can read inputs, but I would like to use P2,P3,P4,P5 on parallel breakout board for step/dir. I did not succeed trying to link gpio, and suspect I will need some firmware to assign P2-P5 to StepGen's.
I suspect the mesanet link doesn't work? www.mesanet.com/software/ ... ? I want to see what options is available. Any suggestions are welcome please.

Is a 7I76e config that supports 2X of the common 5 Axis parallel port breakouts on the expansion connectors
for a total of 15 stepgen channels. It should also work with other parallel port breakouts for step/dir only

Made for this type of breakout:

Hi Peter,

Thank you for the Firmware, It worked well. The problem with the link was from my internet provider, I used a different internet service, then I could access the link. Thank you very much for your help.
