Chapter 8. Special Features for Notebook... > Sharing Local Resources via Parallel...

Sharing Local Resources via Parallel or Serial Connection

A growing number of portable users also have a desktop system. They regularly transfer files between systems by using either a floppy disk or a direct parallel or serial cable, and a third-party application to handle the transfer. Windows 95 includes a feature called Direct Cable Connection that integrates the same capability within Windows 95; essentially, you can use a serial or parallel cable to network together your portable and desktop PCs, creating a small peer-to-peer network. The two computers then can access each other's files and other resources (such as a fax modem) as if they were joined by a traditional network interface.
