Setting up Direct Parallel Cable Connection between 2 laptops for file transfer
Posted on 2003-03-24
Trying to transfer files from old laptop running Windows 95, to new laptop running Windows 2000. Connected both computers with a parallel cable, and set up the new laptop as the "guest" and the old laptop (Win 95) as the "host", but I can't make the connection, since the new "guest" computer keeps prompting for a password and domain (don't know why) and whatever I key in - is not accepted by the old "host" computer, thus connection is not established. When I try to reverse roles and connect old computer as "guest" - then the connection is made, but the new computer is not "identified" by old "guest" computer, and therefore i can't see the folders on the new "host" from the old "guest" (ie - there is a connection, but i cannot view the folders on one computer from the other). HELP!!
