I'm not sure if this topic belongs to this board, but I don't know where else to ask this question. I would deeply appreciate any help, since I've spent too long on this without getting anywhere I'm trying to connect 2 PCs back to back with "standard" parallel port (master-slave). From what I've found out the standard parallel port is for output, but it can be used for 4 bit I/O with handshake to transfer 4 bits at a time. I know that there are 8 data pins for output, 5 status input pins and 4 control pins used for input/output. The problem is I can't figure out how to connect the pins. Thank you in advance.
