Most of the hardware interfacing projects uses Printer/LPT port to control external devices like LEDS, Relays ,stepper motors, etc. There are a lot of projects on this using VB6. Just Google. A few links though.

But you have to be careful, otherwise you can blow up your motherboard or worst. As an precaution, use LPT PCI Card. Be sure to recheck the circuit design, program etc.

Time to use your friends (yahoo, google, ask, answers, bing) to search for vb6 and the name of the hardware you want to connect to/control via access port method (serial, parallel, usb) as there are threads and tutorials out there to connect to switches, leds, and so on.



Good Luck
