    short answer: you don't. windows (NT, 2k, xp, vista) blocks all that stuff for security reasons.

    A workaround:
    search for giveio.sys It's a driver that you can install on the machine that opens up all I/O ports for windows machines. After installation, all you need to do is open the driver (works for DOS programs too!) and then all ports will behave like under w98 and earlier versions of windows.

    I have not tried giveio.sys under Vista, but from XP back it works fine.
