How do you use direct cable connection?
I tried connecting two computers with a laplink parallel cable, and running direct cable connection. No matter what I tried, I got as far as "verifying user and password" on both machines, followed by disconnecting from cable, and then "could not log in".
I tried setting the workgroups the same. I tried changing the username used to login on the guest machine to none (escape key) to match the "noname" default on the host. No good.
What does it take? I've used network cards, I've used dialup networking, I could not get direct cable to work.
