Or, How can I transmit file through parallel port ?

You can use the direct cable connection capability of Windows 95.
If you need to incorporate this capability into your application, then you have to use a special DLL that will enable you to read/write data from/to the parallel port. You must read the file in binary mode and put the data in a byte array, then you send the data to the parallel port. On the other side, you read the incoming data and write them to the file.
The DLL is called WINIO.DLL and can be found on many URL's on the net. If you like, leave me your e-mail address and I will e-mail it to you.
So far, I haven't seen any OCX that automates this procedure.

Note:
What I meant by "If you need to incorporate this capability into your application...", is that you can use the DLL without the need to use the direct cable connection of Windows. The user has to connect the two computers with a cable only without the need to install any drivers, etc.
