Yes, I'm trying to understand xml file parameters. I'm checking with this.

For what it's worth, "parallel port" means something very different in this context. It's the 25-pin connector used to talk to pre-USB printers. Once upon a time, it was also the most common (only?) way for LinuxCNC to talk to CNC hardware. It's kind of the opposite end of the spectrum from EtherCAT.

You're saying that your Panasonic A6B is connected directly to the motherboard's Ethernet port?

Pre-USB???? Surely Pre-ethernet is a better benchmark. Never buy a USB printer.. Insist on an ethernet port. :)
I'll take my old digital document production hat off now!

I have had similar issues when trying EtherCAT on new Raspberry Pi 5 running faster servo threads.
You can try pcie ethernet card with intel chip and then change master device 0  MAC address and generic driver for igb/igc/e1000e or similar in ethercat.conf - depending on you ethernet controller driver. It might be an issue with onboard ethernet controller.
On my dell optiplexes onboard ethernet results in pings 0.300ms and pcie ethernet around 0.080ms, which makes a difference.
