I have two computers running Win98 2nd Ed. I want to transfer data (files and programs) from one computer to the other and visa-versa. I have a CD Recordable on on computer but naturally it is not on the one that I want to get most of the information from.
I have a "direct cable" connection with a serial cable to Com1 an each computer and Windows says it is connected properly. However it is asking for my computer name - where do I find this? Also this connection leaves my computer open to the internet if I forget to close it. I would like to use a different program and "briefcase" only updates synchronous files.
What would you suggest to transfer data using the serial cable?
