PLIP for bi-directional ports, anyone done this?

  Subject says it all. /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/README1.PLIP
calls this Parallel Transfer Mode 1, although there's no code
for it present in plip.c.

Thanks in advance!

(sometimes called TurboPLIP). I debuged it and got it working, but
was disapointed of the initial performance. I don't think anyone
done anything with it since.

Unfortunately, I lost the source (along with three month email). Try
asking Johannes, if you wish to work on it.

1. PLiP and Bi-directional port

Hi!
I'm planning to network 2 Linux computers using PLiP and a self built
cable that will support
faster speeds when used with Bi-Directional parrallel ports
(/usr/src/linux/drivers/net/README.PLIP1).
I have a Bi-Directional port on my Pentium machine, but my concern is
the 486DX 33Mhz/8megs ram that will be the other machine.
Will this machine support the speeds achieved by a Bi-Directional
parrallel port?
The 486 does not have PCI, so I will buy an ISA add-in card.
Both machines will be running the Latest kernel and PLiP versions.

Thanx!!
