I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm not sure which type of parallel cable you have, but even if the both
parallel ports looks similare and can use same printers, they haren't 100%
compatible with each other. So depending on what kind of cable you have it may
or may not work.

If you have a so-called lap-link cable, all should be fine. I'm not
aware of any other parallel cables to let a PC communicate with another
computer. I can't give any guarantees, though. Maybe you should try to
find the schematic of the lap-link cable and find out whether your cable
is the same as that schematic (measure!)

Cheers,

Get a "Laplink" or "Parallel transfer" cable and it'll work.  I bought
one from Office World and use it, with PC2Amiga from Aminet, and it
works just fine.

1. >>>>>WTB: 386 PC Board<<<<<===

        I am in dire (well, my wife doesn't think so) need of a 386
Bridge board.  I'd prefer it to be a 386/25 with around 4 meg but I will
consider ALL offers.  I never turn down a good deal.

        A friend of mine (duhhhh) showed me his running windows, an IBM
floppy and a dedicated CD rom.   Thought it was the qoolest thing and

.......Had to have one!!!

        I got the money and the time.  Let's do business people.
