I want to write an application in VB.Net that will allow me to read data from a parallel printer port.
1. How can I do this to specifically work under Windows XP? How do I program this in VB.Net to read data?
2. Is there a way to do this that will work platform independent - i.e. any platform that will work with my VB.Net program will be able to use my program to read from the parallel port.
