the solution for u r problem Mr.Rajeeve is , U should us a control called MSCOMM control in VB6, the control's property is given clearly in the MSDN Library tool. all the best.
First you find the parallel port .[available in shops].then try to code it into it using VB.
if you came across an error while u r coding try to rectify it somehow .very simple.
I have used serial communication in my project. It was to get the reading from a digital weighing machine. for the code you can look for "serial communication" in visual basic help.

Hope this will help you.
