I have to transfer files from one computer (XP) to another (2000). I was given a “Cross-over” (or something) cable to plug into both LAN cards. I have done that. there are green lights all around.
Now what? I tried the “New Connection” wizard, but it only gives me the options of LPT1 Parallel Port or COM1 and COM2…none of which look like a Realtek LAN card to me, y’know. I tried the LPT1 with a client on one side and host on the other- no dice.
What wizards do I have to run, what settings should I use, etc. This is only to move files, not to share printers, etc.
ps- If you want me to look someplace, please post a direct link, I’m running on a 12kbps dial-up now…seriously, 12! Friggin communist-era phone lines.
