how to configure home parameters

Hello
A few days ago, I realized that I needed more than one limit switch to homing,so I added another one, one for home search and the other for home latch, then I got a problem because after pressed the first one, you have to release it and then press it again to make a hard stop. Well, I have my two limit switch one after the other, so there's no chance to release the first one and when the machine arrives to the second, nothing happens.

On the other hand, in my .hal file, how should I configure both switches? I've been thinking that you have to use the same configuration for both, but that isn't possible.

Example

my signals are something like this

net home-min-y ....parport.0....pin12
net max-y....parport.0.......pin13

but if you have that second switch for latch, How do I have to add that signal?

I did the following, just to test what happens, but that wasn't succesful.

net home-y ....parport.0....pin11

I'm really confused about that

You only need one switch to home to. EMC moves off the switch then back to it.

Thank you John, I made a mistake, I didn't realize that my home value in my .ini file was 0, that's why I had a lot of problems.
