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.

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?
