Please don't double post.

You should be able to do it through the functions

OpenFile
WriteFile
CloseHandle

on Windows

on Unix I think you can open the parallel port in the same way as a file if you use the correct device name.

You would be better off using a USB Connection parallel are more for printers.

May you send me the sample program in VB6.0 using those functions ?
