Are you talking about like doing serial communications?  Why would you not want to use your com ports?

What exactly are you doing?  A program like interlnk? or a game(or something else?)  If it is a game I wouldn't use the Lpt port.

No I don't get >256bits ...
Can you be more specific, but I guess you just want to know how you must program the LPT port, am I right ?
If that's the only thing you want to know then I can send you the program for it right away

do it like this:

in the source computer:

assign (f,'LPT1');
rewrite(f);
writeln (f,'example');

in the desternation computer:

assign(f,'LPT1');
reset(f);
readln(f,st);

now st='example';
