Its an SPI port, so anything that can bang SPI bus can do it. You can even use Arduinos.

i havent got any arduinos i can use, but i do have the parallel and rs-232 port available, surely i can use those and install an arduino bootloader on it, right?
and then just do the coding using those?

Yes, you can find bit-bangers that work via LPT1 - but I'm not sure if they work via USB-LPT adapters,

Try this

It looks like its ideal for you.
