    Assalam o alaikum,
    I want to control a servo motor of futaba fps-148 through parallel port using turbo c. I want to know that do i have to build a servo motor driver or i can simply use the data pins d0-d8 of parallel port to control the servo?

    Regards

    A driver is required..
    Google has TONS of results for driving servo motors via a driver off a parallel port
