Connecting Two PCs with a Direct Network Connection

If your portable PC is part of a network, it's easy to send files back and forth. If your PC is not part of a network, you can still share files with another computer—you just have to set up a direct connection between the two PCs, manually.

With Windows XP you can connect any two PCs by using either a serial cable or a DirectParallel cable. (I recommend the DirectParallel method—it's faster.) This method also is useful for connecting Pocket PC and Windows CE devices to your desktop or portable PC.
