Does anybody out there have the PIN OUT for the printer port on a NEC Versa Txi laptop? Answered

Somebody gave me this Versa Txi laptop , it has a small connector on the side for the printer, I would like to use the machine for experimenting with controls, using the parallel port, unfortunately i did not get the printer cable. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
