Parallel Port

A Parallel Port an interface that is usually located on the back of old computers and it was used to connect printers and other external devices. This 25 pin connector is sometimes referred to as a Centronics interface (Centronics were the company that developed them) or a printer port. the latest version is called an Enhanced Parallel Port (EPP) and can transfer data ten times faster than the original Parallel Port, although it looks likely that USB and Firewire interfaces will be the most popular choice.
