you can use a usb port
provided the usb lpt
is addressed as its own device by an arbitor bridge
joining the usb device to a port address like lpt 1 or 2 etc

cheep leeds offer 'usb printer support'
...nothing in the right address range ...!

there is one bridge cable i found
that can run usb to lpt arbitor
however it also has to have its own hardware to work as a standard lpt bi-dir port

so usb can be done with these programmers {i do it} but it costs you for stuff to do it mine is a trust product there is a range of these on there support site cost was about 20 uk

'usb to true lpt' is the search string or
'usb to true parallel port'



use this to connect some 'most' usb printer support types to a physical address range app can use like the crap front end for willem

with the ' usb printer support 'driver
you treat it exactly as a normal lpt however you 'print' the file to a different bound location
as a held handshake {on 'do it' off} instead of normal solid bound port linking {always on till its off}

machine toshiba equium laptop usb only type
p5b asus main machine
thinking of adding dual lpt pci card
both used for top and lpt via usb where i can

old p2 programming grumbling tank with xp sp3 for true serial and lpt

all machines bios set to enable bios plug and play aware o/s and lpt spollers services and drivers removed
legacy detection enabled
