Parallel Port Pin-Out

EPP was created in 1991 to permit up to 2 Mbps data transfer, and was intended primarily for non-printers.
 
ECP was created in 1992 to permit higher speed printer communications.
 
IEEE1284 was created in 1994 to combine EEP and ECP, and relies on the host to determine which standard to use.
