Hi John cc current,
PLIP (Parallel IP) has been dead for years, last good on 4.11
Any chance your current or future patches might fix that ?
If so, I have machine(s) here running 7-Stable I can test against
(& cables proven good on 4.11, & still 2 x 4.11 hosts where PLIP works).

(Yes PLIP is slow, but when pcmcia ethernet wont work on some laptops
it's great to have, one of my older laptops is now just SLIP-115200)
