Someone I know just got a laptop and wants to transfer files from their desktop (win98) to Laptop (winxp). My understanding is that winnt,2000,xp, don't support direct connect. So using null-modem cable with third part software will work? I suggested copying on cdr because he has a cd writer. What do you say? Thanks for your input.

Well I learned that it's parallel port that's not supported by winnt,2000,xp.

DCC can be set up using NT based OSes.
Null Modem Serial Cables may be the least problematic to set up but parallel cables can be used too.
