I just got a new computer, and I’m trying to use Windows’ “Direct Cable Connection” to get data from my old one to my new one. I got a parallel port- to -parallel port cable, and I’ve set up the old computer as a host and the new one as a guest.
But when the two connect, the new computer tells me I have to enter the name of the old computer in order to be able to see the shared folders on the old one. Say what? I can’t find the “computer’s name” anywhere. It doesn’t seem to be its Network Identification name, because when I enter that, it doesn’t help. Does anyone know how I can find out what name the program is asking me for?
