It only supports to connect 2 pc via serial cable (nullmocel cable) or parallel cable (also cross over data cables).

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Norton Commander isn't designed to work with Windows XP. It is for Windows NT Win 98 & Win 95 only.

@XpUser
I guess, we are talking about the DOS version of Norton Commander.

@mohandese
As far as I know, you have to run the same version of Norton Commander on both PCs.
So if you will use it, to connect a DOS machine with a WinXP machine, on the windows machine, you have to run also the DOS version in command prompt environment.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

sorry ! I didn't said that I have NC on both computers & want to connect them via com cable.
THis is what I did :

Command + Terminal Emulator + Setting + Line
There I selected my desire options ( port , baudrate ,...)

then when I saw that the cable ic connected correctly, I did so :
Left( or Right ) + Link + Master (on XP) + Link button

exactly the same on DOS , but DOS is Slave.

then when I clicked link button , NC on XP hung!!

solution ??

thanx

Solution: None! NC won't work with XP.

Solution none, except you use NCs own serial link function.

XpUser !
Forget about the XP. because I ran NC on it & it's a program under DOS ! so there is no problem !!

I did it. I could see DOS's C drive on XP , but it is very very slow. because when I typed "cd" command , it took about 5 min to do it !!
I just want to know is there any setting thet I didn't set?

Serial connections are in general slow, but you might have to set the baud rate.
As I know in DOS the standard baud rate is 9600 and can be set to 115200.
You have to check this also in Windows device manager under serial devices.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Thanks for your reply

but I tried both of them & the result was the same.
It will be better if I use parallel port ?

Impossible is nothing !!!

How a silly solution it has!!!
I just did it between two DOS machines!

But I think it's very bad that it's very very slow on XP!

by the way, thanks all of you... :-)

You could use laplink 3 using a parallel cable. It is much faster than the serial connection. I used to do this between two dos machines all the time. You have to make a simple adapter cable between the two db25 connectors used o n the pc's printer output connection. You can google for cable connections. I think there was a couple of different cable pin outs depending on exactly which version of dos laplink you use. Lap link can also use a serial null modem line norton.
