Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

'Open the port

Open "LPT1" For Output As #1

'Once opened, you can print directly to it
Print #1, "Your text"

'then, you have to close the port:

Close #1
Found it myself but I will post for others.
