Sorry if this has already been answered but I can't find a reference to it. I want to buy DejaVu but both my USB ports are already being used. The website recommends USB over parallel ports. Does anyone know why or if there is any possible problem with connecting the dongle to the parallel port? Thanks.

Install a USB Hub Sep 26, 2005

Dear Tracy,

the USB hardware keys (a.k.a. dongles) are much preferable to the parallel port solution as they are much easier to insert, smaller to carry around, if necessary, and probably the parallel dongles are on their way to disappear.

If you want to expand your PC's USB ports you can purchase a fairly inexpensive USB Hub, there are many models (I have a 7 ports model) and it will be also useful for the ever increasing number of USB devices.

They look like this: http://images.google.com/images?q=USB%20Hub&hl=en


bye
Gianfranco
