Upgrade to PP from Mach 3

I have a PCNC1100 Series 3. It has a PC running the software, the link between the computer and the mill is a parallel port PN25 cable. I recently purchased and installed PP version 2.8 via USB dongle. Now the PP software is saying that it can’t find my machine as it doesn’t have an ethernet connection. Any recommendations on how to fix would be appreciated.

Pathpilot requires that you have a Mesa 5i25 in/out card in your computer. It will not work with your standard LPT port.

Thank for the info Donald.
