[App_rpt-users] I/O using parallel port

The problem from what you are describing is not with the PP at all.
It is your command structure.
You must have a conflicting command start.

Scrub though your command list and look for assignments that start with:

two digit -84 and/or
three digit -840/841 etc.

Asterisk always runs with the first match.
If the is a 2 digit command 84, anything else starting with 84 will never
execute. (It will always execute 84 command not 84x, 84xx, 84xxx, 84xxxx)
.

I often warn everyone to organize their command list in numeric order so
you don't do such a thing.

If you find one, you can convert it to a non-conflicting 4 digit command
and you are fine. (8400)
