Terrible performance of direct cable connection
Posted on 1999-12-11
I have just setup a direct cable connection between my laptop and desktop machines, both running the same version of Win-95. Everything seems to work ok but it is terribly slow. Although I am using a serial cable I would expect it to run as fast as the DOS based INTERSVR mechanism for transfering files. Initially COM2 was set to 9600 baud but changing it to 115200 baud under the control panel didn't seem to make that much difference.
Many thanks in advance.
