PC position and cable lengths?

Postby Mikes » Tue Oct 10, 2017 4:44 pm

So due to the layout of my workshop, I'm space challenged now that I have the Nebula. I'd like to place the PC off on another desk that's close to the machine, but allows me to stop using the keyboard/monitor arm which is sort of in the way for me.

I know that using an active USB cable would let me pick up another 15 ft of length, so that would be plenty, but I'm wondering about the parallel port. What is the max cable length that you guys think would be ok? If I could get up to 12-15 feet that would be plenty.

Thanks,
Mike
