Hi

I hope this question will not be too much of a trouble for 
you, I have spent some time looking around the documentation
and could not find answer for it myself so here goes:

I owuld like to use the Paralel Prot of a FreeBSD running 
machine to control another very simple device which is not a
printer. The interface to that device, however, is not
compatible with the interface to a printer and does not 
support the hardware hand-shake protocol a normal printer 
would do. Is there a way I could reconfigure the kernel 
respectively the /dev/lpt0 device to ignore those errors and
simply dump numbers to the parallel port? It has to be 
something very simple, but I don't seem to be able to find 
it.,


Thanks a lot.

Sincerely
Jivko Koltchev
