What is it you are trying to do with the cable?

I have a diagram at home which I can send or post, but it really depends on what you want to do, inputs or outputs?

You certainly can damage the port on the PC if you connect any power to the pins.

If you are asking can you push the wires into the Parallel 25 pin female socket without a plug, then the answer is Yes, providing you know which wire was connected to which pin. Just be careful that you don't create a problem by not having a good connection.
