Most PCs will accept an internal parallel data card with a port to the back of the computer. Pretty old school. They aren't used much any more. You might want to look into a USB to parallel adapter. Here is a link to one on Amazon.



If you are ordering a PC on line you can specify an add-on parallel card from the manufacturer. Most of them will do it. If you can buy a PC locally the store will most likely install it for you.
