plipconfig - Unix, Linux Command
NAMEplipconfig - fine tune PLIP device parameters
plipconfig interface [nibble NN] [trigger NN] [unit NN]
DESCRIPTIONPlipconfig is used to (hopefully) improve PLIP performance by changing the default timing parameters used by the PLIP protocol. Results are dependent on the parallel port hardware, cable, and the CPU speed of each machine on each end of the PLIP link.
If the single interface argument is given, plipconfig displays the status of the given interface only. Otherwise, it will try to set the options.
|Sets the nibble wait value in microseconds. Default is 3000.|
|Sets the trigger wait value in microseconds. Default is 500.|
NOTEIf you get no response it is far more likely the irq is wrong and needs setting with ifconfig. The few cases where the default parameters will be too fast are those using very long cables. Something you should never do as the parallel port is not specified or designed for driving long cable runs.
