This is the dongle number when several dongles are plugged in one after the other. The maximum number of dongles available can be determined via the MatrixDongle.Count function.
A maximum of 99 dongles can be connected to the LPT port and a maximum of 127 dongles to the USB connection.
The plugin uses 1 if you don't pass this parameter.
With LPT dongles, this is the number of the LPT port to which the dongles are connected. With LPT dongles, the port number must be between 1 and 3. Example: 1 for LPT1, 2 for LPT2 or 3 for LPT3.
