SYNOPSIS


.Cd "device vpo"

For one or more SCSI busses:
.Cd "device scbus"

DESCRIPTION

The vpo driver provide access to parallel port Iomage Zip and Jaz drives.

HARDWARE

The vpo 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)

USAGE

The 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 formating 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.
