    Command:

    plipconfig

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           plipconfig interface [nibble NN] [trigger NN]
           plipconfig [-V] [--version] [-h] [--help]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Plipconfig  is used to (hopefully) improve PLIP performance by changing
           the default timing parameters used by the PLIP  protocol.  Results  are
           dependent  on  the  parallel port hardware, cable, and the CPU speed of
           each machine on each end of the PLIP link.
    
           If the single interface argument is given, plipconfig displays the sta-
           tus  of  the  given  interface only.  Otherwise, it will try to set the
           options.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           nibble NN
                  Sets the nibble wait value in microseconds. Default is 3000.
    
           trigger NN
                  Sets the trigger wait value in microseconds. Default is 500.
    
           PLIP speed can in some cases be improved by lowering the  default  val-
           ues.  Values which are too low may cause excess use of CPU, poor inter-
           rupt response time resulting in serial ports dropping characters, or in
           dropping  of  PLIP  packets. Changing the plip MTU can also affect PLIP
           speed.
    
    
    

    NOTE

           If you get no response it is far more likely the irq is wrong and needs
           setting  with ifconfig. The few cases where the default parameters will
           be too fast are those using very  long  cables.  Something  you  should
           never  do as the parallel port is not specified or designed for driving
           long cable runs.
