I'm trying to transfer files from my old 98 computer to my new XP computer using Direct Cable Connection with a parallel cable. Despite following a number of guides on the internet to do with protocols, I come up with the same problem:
When actually trying to connect, the XP computer displays the message "Verifying username and password..." whilst the 98 computer says "Waiting for guest computer".
If I cancel the connection on the 98 computer, the XP cancels as well, so there must be some sort of communication going on. Also, if the cable is not connected when the DCC is launched on XP, it still displays "Verifying username and password...".
Does anyone know exactly what I should do? If you need anymore info, please ask.
