QUESTION

Can I use a parallel to USB port replicator to connect my parallel dongle to an USB port?

ANSWER

If the port replicator produces a memory address (I/O range) and has an assigned DMA range in the device manager, it can be used.

This must be entered into the configuration utility SetupSysDriver.exe, that can be found under:
C:Program FilesRainbow TechnologiesSentinel System Driver

Most people require a USB-to-parallel port replicator because they want to connect a parallel port dongle on their laptop which has a USB port rather than a parallel port. In such cases, a possible solution would be to use a PCMCIA to parallel port adapter which must comply to IEEE 1284 standards and is mapped to a memory address (I/O range).

You may also contact your Keil representative and ask for an alternative licence protection.
