The lptaddresses attribute specifies the base address of the PC's parallel ports.

Member of

port One of the following values:
Value Description
lpt<n> n specifies the port number (e.g., lpt1, lpt2, lpt3, ...).
address A hexidecimal number (e.g., 0348, A588, AF16) representing the address of the parallel port.


For the standard ports LPT1 and LPT2, Inquisit can usually determine the base address automatically. For extended or virtual ports, it may be necessary to specify the base address using this attribute.


The following sets the addresses for the first and second parallel ports:

/ lptaddresses = (lpt1=0348, lpt2=A588)
