How hard can this be >? Seems to be harder than I thought.
I have a serial cable for file transfer and attached to the pc's ports. I have configured the "new" pc to be the guest and the old pc to be the host. Yet they cant seem to recognise that each is set up. I have the right names in for the respective computers and also have the correct option sekected for the type of connection.
Whats the obvious thing that I am missing ....
(Predictablly someone will say "sense" or intelligence but i have checked this with my mom and she says I have a bit of both ...:)
I bought the cable some time ago and have ditched the packageing ...all i remember was that it was serial and mentioned file transfer ....so i thought it would work ...i will have to buy a "labelled" and obvious null modem cable....or use a usb ...but my new pc is usb 2.0 and the old 1.0 can u mix them ....and get files to transfer from old to new. This is a one time transfer not for constant use. I know i could burn cds but hey I want eventually wipe my old pc and reinstall then put back some files. Then the old pc will become a archive machine in a sense.
