5 Axis Breakout Board
Can anyone tell me how to use Delphi to send commands to a 5 Axis breakout board to control stepper motors? Not much info on the net, so I thought here might be a good start

What sort of connectors does the board support? USB? serial port?

The board is connected to the parallel port
