I have been trying to connect my laptop to my home PC in w98
via a parallel lap link cable.
using direct cable connection I set the laptop as host and the other as guest, run the program on each computer and the go through password checking and come up with a box saying thier connected. I have set the file I want to access as shared but I get a message box up saying the guest can't find the host put the host name in I do this but still cant find.
anyone know what I'm doing wrong

Thanks Scott

Welcome to TSG!
I believe the problem may be in which you configured as host and guest.
I may be wrong but I believe the PC has to be the Host and the Laptop the guest.
