The answer is: yes, with some qualifications depending on the OS you are
running. The Online Help or reference manuals should provide info on the
built-in "In Port" and "Out Port" functions for port I/O, and there are some
good resources on the NI Web site for additional help if you're running NT or
equivalent, such as:

Rummage around for "in port" or "hardware registers" on the NI site.
