We bought a small benchtop cnc mill and I'm trying to hook up this new laptop to it, but it has only USB ports, no parallel.
i read, these USB to parallel port cables are not fully functional, may not work with a cnc.

An alternative to the USB emulators is a PCMCIA card EPP parallel port

More expensive than the usb ports, but true IBM PC Parallel port computability across a wide range of Windows OSs (9x/ME/Nt/2K/XP/CE)
