    Hi Jack. Welcome.
    Are you able to jog the machine around?
    Is your gcode less than 500 lines?
    Are there drivers associated with that usb to lpt board?
    Have you watched Paul Campbell's mach3 YouTube videos?

    I am unable to jog.
    I’m using the example g code found in Mach 3 software
    How would I check for the correct driver.
    Can you tell I’m new to all of this?
    I will look for his video on youtube.

    Do you have the interface board plugged in to the 24v supply too?
    You want to get the machine jogging around first before you throw any code at it Jack

    No, I had no idea there was a need. I did watch the videos and I verified I had the driver installed. If I use a USB to DB25 adapter cable would I still need an interface board?
    Thanks for all your help.
    Jack

    There are a number of iterations of those. Which do you have?
