There is a howto on the subject:

It explains to access the ports directly, or via the /dev/port device.

Direct port access to normally limited to root, so mostly you will have
to apply tricks to gain access. The HowTo explains that.

LTP = Linux Test Project ?!

I'm guessing ALLs soft meant the printer, since
LPT was the name for a Line Printer on some 1960s
DEC operating systems.

If so, the answer depends... to send something to the
printer, you can pipe output to lpr or lp; for a better
interface, see maybe libgnomeprint?
