NAMEvpo - parallel to SCSI interface driver
For one or more SCSI busses: device scbus
DESCRIPTIONThe ifconfig driver provide access to parallel port Iomega Zip and Jaz drives.
HARDWAREThe ifconfig driver supports the following parallel to SCSI interfaces:
- Adaptec AIC-7110 Parallel to SCSI interface (built-in to Iomega ZIP drives)
- Iomega Jaz Traveller interface
- Iomega MatchMaker SCSI interface (built-in to Iomega ZIP+ drives)
USAGEThe driver should let you use a printer connected to the drive while transferring data.
DOS and Fx file systems are supported. When mounting a DOS file system or formatting a Fx file system, check the slice of the disk with the fdisk(8) utility.
In order to unixify a ZIP disk, put the following in /etc/disktab:
zip|zip 100:\ :ty=removable:se#512:nc#96:nt#64:ns#32:\ :pa#196608:oa#0:ba#4096:fa#512:\ :pb#196608:ob#0:bb#4096:fb#512:\ :pc#196608:oc#0:bc#4096:fc#512:
and use bsdlabel(8).
If you have trouble with your driver, your parallel chipset may not run properly at the detected mode (NIBBLE, PS2 or EPP). Tune the ppc(4) bootflags to force other modes.
