     I have had good luck adding a parallel port for use with FODTrack, but
I used a PCI card, not a USB adapter.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Tracking with parallel to USB converter

I want to use my HalloRotor parallel-port rotor interface with a new PC 
that doesn't have a parallel port.  Has anybody had success using a 
parallel-to-USB converter with a parallel port rotor interface?

In the past I used a parallel-to-USB converter and Windows device 
manager decided that it was a "USB printer", not LPT2.  Is there a model 
of parallel-to-USB converter that Windows recognizes as a LPTx ?
