Ok, if you meant this:
addf stepgen.capture-position servo-thread
addf motion-command-handler servo-thread
addf motion-controller servo-thread
addf stepgen.update-freq servo-thread

Then no they weren't. Added them and....... THE MACHINE MOVES AND HOMES!!!! Andy Sir, you are (in Aussie speak) a bloody legend!!! Now I have something to work with. To help others I will post all my files when I am done so they can have Pathpilot on a parallel port.

I am SO stoked......

Happy days :)

Cheers
Bruce

Hello Bruce.

Very impressed with what you have done with Pathpilot so far.

I'm new here so, sorry if this question has already been asked.

Can you confirm you got Pathpilot to work through the parallel port on the PC or through the parallel port on the Mesa board?

Hi MIke

P port on the PC, at the moment I don't own a Mesa card.

Cheers

Hello Bruce,

That's good news. You are doing exactly what I wish to do. I will wait patiently for you to post the necessary files.
Do I need the Tormach Pathpilot reinstall disc?

Good result for Auss in the rugby world cup. Just wait until you meet up with Wales Lol

Cheers

Hello Bruce,

How is the Pathpilot to Parallel Port working out? Does it work reliably, as expected, or have you hit any bugs?

Regards

Mike

Sorry guys, been away. PP is running pretty good at the moment, a few weird things I am am trying to get to the bottom of before saying too much more. Have work offset touchoff working, G30 remapped to my own routine 'cause I couldn't get Tormachs to work for me (probably my own fault) and a couple of other little gotcha's. Had a number of joint following errors today after fitting 3:1 belt drives to my machine but fixed that with a parport timing change. Will definitely report back more when I am happy.

Mike, while I might live in Aus and I am an ex Kiwi and religiously follow the All Blacks. Really annoyed Aus won the 1/4 final, Scotland played so much better than they did. Will be cheering for Argentina in the semi :)
