Parallel cable communication

  • 18 years ago

    Does anyone know if winsock could be used for direct (parallel cable) comunication between computers? Or what other control, APi call or something...? I have some info on the mscomm control but it seems to apply only to rs-232 communication...

    Dunno if this help, but you can always open a port as a file:

    Dim fileN as integer

    Open "LPT1:" For Input access read as  #fileN
