Hi Marko, that's great news! I'll give it a test (finally) with some 8250

Maybe it'll work with the NT tweak tool for enabling LPT port access. There
is one on for use with Star Commander.

I think it's most important to most people that there is a version that runs
on Win9x PCs at all. I don't see much of a point in transferring data to/from
an 8088 DOS system, because it is sort of a dead end. On the other hand, I
have a networked 386 IBM PS/2 machine in my lab with MS-DOS only (for data
aquisition via IEEE488, runs much more stable than any 486/586 system I
tried). The only 8088 system I have is the A2088 board in my A2000, but it
doesn't have any I/O ports.
