Does windows XP only support 3 LPT printer ports ?

The os has that limitation ?

How to support more than 3 then?

Do you mean 3 physical legacy parallel ports, or 3 printers, or what?

What do you mean, exactly? Do you mean 3 parallel ports? Your BIOS
usually does not have support more than 3 ISA-style parallel ports.
However, you can certainly insert a PCI card that adds more parallel
ports. DOS programs won’t be able to use them, but Windows can.

On the other hand, there aren’t that many uses for parallel ports these
days. Printers certainly no longer use them.
