Print to two parallel printers Slackware

By Computer Geek ·
I am trying to configure a Slackware 10.2.0 system to be a print server to two Mansmann Talley printers using the onboard parallel port and a StarTech PCI Parallel card (EPP/ECP).
I have modified the modules.conf file in /etc by adding the following:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
option io=0x378,0xc278 irq=7,5,auto

The printer connected to the onboard port prints fine, but the pci port does not print, although the que shows that the job was submitted and done. On screen both queues are operating the same, I just don't get a printout from the pci printer.
I have also switched the cables to make sure it's not the printer or cables that are the issue. When I switch them the other printer then works fine but the one now attached to the PCI card does not print out, thus it must be with the card or it's configuration. Any thoughts?
