Hi all.

Congratulations for such a nice product as ZeroShell is. Outstanding piece of work!

I'm not sure if this has been suggested/requested before but the inclusion for a HD44780 LCD Based Display connected to the Parallel Port would be a major asset to this fine product. The software to achieve this could easily be based on the LCDproc or LCD4Linux GPL packages.

I truly believe this could be used as a tremendous and valuable piece of monitoring in a single display.

What do you think?

Best regards.

It would be a good idea, but I think that la Centronix parallel port is not longer a common interface to find on the motherboard. In any case, I will investigate if it is possibile to use an LCD display connected to a USB interface.
