    Hi, I'm trying to connect 2 Win 98 pc's via a parrallel File transfer cable on the printer ports. I think I have almost everything set up correctly. When the guest computer tries to connect it shows the connecting box, then quicky flashes thru a box that says(I think, it's pretty quick) something about a password and then disconnects. I didn't think I had the host set up to require a password and now I don't know where to go from here. I thought it would be a simple procedure... :confused:

    When I try to connect it seems that there's an issue with the password not being verified. I set a password in the host but on the guest computer it doesn't give me an opportunity to enter a password.
    Also, where in Bios does it allow me to change the port to bi directional (if it isn't already)?
