Exclamation serial and parallel port with DMESG command

Hi group,

How can I identify the serial and parallel ports(interfaces) using dmesg?

I can see the entry for serial ports "/dev/ttyS0" but can't see entry for parellel port. While computer have parallel

Using the dmesg command identify the IRQs and I/O ports used by your computer's serial and parallel interfaces.
