You can attach up to three parallel ports (LPT) to a virtual machine. The virtual parallel port can connect to a parallel port or a file on the host operating system. To add a new virtual parallel port to your virtual machine, click the Add button on the Hardware panel. The Add Virtual Hardware Wizard appears, guiding you through the process of adding the virtual parallel port.
You can set the following options under Device status:
Note: If the parallel port device may be inaccessible to the guest operating system when the virtual machine is powered on, deselect this option. For example, an Iomega Zip drive might not be connected when the virtual machine powers on. In this case, you can enable access to the parallel port after startup using the VM > Removable Devices menu.
You can set the following options under Connection:
Note: When you power on the virtual machine, you may see an error message stating the parallel port on the host does not have an ECR (Extended Control Register). If so, it is possible the hardware supports ECR but it has been disabled in the BIOS. In this case, reboot the host, enter the host computer's BIOS configuration editor (typically by holding down the Delete key early in the boot process), find the parallel port field, and enable ECP mode (or a combination of modes that includes ECP). Most modern computers support ECP mode.
If you are adding a new parallel port, click Add to install the device.
To remove an existing parallel port, select that port, then click Remove.
Click OK to save the configuration and close the virtual machine settings editor.
