Hello Jon,

I want to use the LPT port for a DomU to create a print server but I cannot figure out how to pass the LPT to the DomU.
_afaik_ this is not possible. Only PCI or USB devices can be used by DomUs and even this depends on your hardware and the DomU (hvm or pvm). If you really need to have a LPT-Port in DomU I would suggest you get some kind of usb-to-lpt hardware-device. But this is only as far as I know, so maybe there is a solution to your problem, that I don't know.
