Re: [Xen-users] Re: AMD-V or VT

Hi Simon,

There is really no way of doing "non standard" operations with a parallel port. The actual key most likely holds a crypto IC that is going to either generate some proprietary codes, or are decrypting/encrypting some values passed by by the software. You can take an USB parallel adapter and use it like any parallel port. Think of the newer (after year 2000) laptops - these don't have a serial port. And post likely the software runs on these machines also.

Have phun,

For what its worth see if there are "parallel network servers". These
exist for USB and serial ports.

If there isn't one have you thought about a usb to parallel adapter and passing through the usb device?

In the specific application mentioned (a security dongle key for a software package), neither of these are likely to work. Dongles often do "non standard" things to interface and aren't likely to work through some abstracted standard interface.
