Parrallel port Zip Drives

I've had a parallel port Zip drive that I used on a Laptop for a while now and I've recently acquired a special cable and software to use it on An Amiga.
It works in 1.3 & above using boot disks.

The Software uses the ppazip.device and can mount FAT or FFS formatted disks using DosDrivers.

Could parallel port Zip Drives be implemented in WinUAE?

On another note, can you connect SCSI Zip Drives in WinUAE?

I'm guessing no as you need to be able to insert media like a floppy drive.

I thought about using the Add SCSI Tape drive option, would that be the way to go?

SCSI Zip drive should work if mounted as a real harddrive. It includes minimal removable support.

Parallel port support: parallel port is long gone. Not worth the trouble. (EDIT: accessing parallel port directly is also extremely annoying)
