Use the web application to interface with a service or console
application that manages the parallel port.

Hi,

Control of an IO port (such as a printer) requires a device driver (see
IONet.dll for a .NET implementation, or IOocx.ocx for an ActiveX control) on
my homepage.

If you mean for this to be a browser-based application, executing on a
client machine... In general, you are SOL. The rights required to install
the device driver (admin) require that it be installed locally, and not as
part of something that you might download. This doesn't mean that it is
impossible, just hard and error-prone.

If you mean something else, please clarify.

Dick
