Do the olympus pen ep-1 and epl-1 have the same usb port.

Unfortunately there is no remote shutter device that will work with the EPL1. It's not just about the socket, it's what the camera can do with the signal being received.
There is hope that a future firmware upgrade might add the capability.
I'd certainly get a remote if any worked.

also, just for information, it's not a USB port (although it looks very very similar) but an Olympus proprietary connector ... I made the same mistake

It will plug in, it just won't do anything. I really can't understand why they left that feature out.

Unfortunately if they do add that functionality it won't be until the release the E-PL2 (then hopefully they will update the firmware for the E-P1, P2 and PL1).
