    Since I have a serial cable handy, I thought I would use it to get some files between computers for the time being. However, I've had a lot of trouble getting the computers to connect Using the DCC. I've got all the protocol installed, and ANY game that supports serial connection works over the serial cable.

    The problem happens when the host computer is listening and the guest computer is trying to connect. The host computer will go to where it says "Verifying username and password..." but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the guest computer to supply a username and password. And because of that I cannot get them to connect.

    Any idea of what to do would be helpful.

    what operating systems are the computers?

    Try making a useraccount on the guest machine that is the same name as the host machine, then try Dcc using the new account
