Re: SASI sattracker parallel port problem

Hi Tom,
I use the SASI myself. I have a canon printer that uses a program called
"The windows printing system" I must go into the printer config, and shutoff
the printer port for the printer before using the SASI or the tracker will
get bad commands from the printing system, in addition to my nova tracking
program. But once I'm done witht he SASI, and want to print something I
return the printing system back to the lpt1 port, and reboot my system. Then
the printer works just fine again... I don't know if this helps you, or not.
But wanted to let you know what I have to do on my end... 73...
