A parallel connector, or parallel port, is an interface used to connect a computer to some external peripheral. An example of things that can hook up to a computer using a parallel port include a printer and/or a scanner. More recently, the USB interface has become extremely common and most types of devices that used to commonly hook up via parallel port now hook up by USB instead.
