DOSBox is designed for playing DOS games on more modern hardware. Although people have had some success using it to run non-game DOS-era applications, its use for that is discouraged and not supported.

You're better off using VirtualBox for this. It has support for passing parallel ports on your host machine through to VMs, including DOS VMs.
