I'm afraid so. There isn't an IEEE1284 protocol for connecting two
computers ("hosts"), only for connecting a host to a peripheral (such
as a printer). The host's view of the cable is quite different from
the peripheral's. It is asymmetric: they have different numbers of
signals that they can control.
One example of a protocol designed for host<->host parallel port
communication is PLIP. Take a look at that.
