Parallel port

P: n/a
Hi!
Is there any way to control parallel port from VB.NET. I want to be able to
send or read data from parallel port on Windows XP. Some ActiveX or dll, API
or anything.
Thx!

Hi,

Yes. Download IOocx from my homepage. It works well under .NET. I haven't
bothered to write a .NET component to wrap the same kernel-mode driver that
IOocx wraps, but it would be straight forward.
