How can I access to the mode and use it ?

Check out sample source for the Zip Parallel port and tips/hints for programming the parallel port:

Early on, I remember that EPP support in the pp driver was not great. I think it had some major renovations and is now considered quite robust based on a quick check of current discussions on the driver.
