Does any anyone know how to connect an XP (Home) machine to a WIN 95 machine via Serial cable? I have some large files on my laptop that I wish to backup on another WIN 95 machine. I know that there are programs that will share data but i would like to keep this as CHEAP as possible. I have limited experiance with direct cable networking...thanks

Windows has "direct cable connect" from version 3.1 onwards from memory. All you need is a crossover cable (Dick Smith X8261?)

Xp will do it still, check your help and support, using direct cable connection for search words
