dos to dos transfer

  Sin 09:47 12 Mar 2005

Hi there,
Does anyone knows how to transfer files in dos from pc to pc.

I also heard that we can tranfer files using external USB in dos. Any ideas how to do it? I tried a few times but not manage to get connected.

Ah Sin

Don't know about usb, but it can be done with serial or parallel cables - what were laplink cables. It is a slow job but works fine for DOS.

I have laplink if you want it but no cables - I passed them one when I found it easier to set up a quick network.

It is normal printer cable? Please send me the software, let me know how to use it. Thanks

No, you need a special cable to use with laplink.

If you have relatively small files, floppy disks still work.

Alternatively you could burn them onto a CD or set up a network very cheaply (depending on your hardware and operating systems).

It's a special cable. If you want the software in CD, email me via the yellow envelope with your address and I will put it in the post for you Monday.
