Link to a computer through another

  fishmad pete 14:45 25 Dec 2006

I have a small network of three computers. The network works through a switch that has one spare way. We have just purchased two new computers to replace the older two and I was hoping to put the old computers onto the spare way of the switch by linking one computer through the other (using a cross over patch lead as one computer has two lan cards) Is this possible as I am not having much joy in doing it.
The only reason I was trying this was so that files could be transferred from the old to the new at the same time. Instead of doing each computer inturn

Regards and a Merry Christmas to one and all

Sorry no one could help with this one. Reverted to doing one computer at a time
